The Animals' front man is the latest star to be captured by Slimane.
Eric Burdon For Saint Laurent

While it’s the youth who flaunt their limbs on the catwalk, elsewhere Saint Laurent’s Music Project could hardly be considered ageist with subjects ranging from Joni Mitchell and Kim Gordon to Chuck Berry and Josh Homme.

The latest addition to Hedi Slimane’s monochrome lensed line-up? Front man of The Animals, Eric Burdon.

Inducted into the Hall of Fame 21 years ago, the band were formed in the early 60’s and are perhaps best noted for their cover of ‘House of The Rising Sun’; in 2012 Burdon’s influence was a prominent feature of Bruce Springsteen’s keynote speech at SXSW.

Shot by the house’s creative director earlier this year in Ojai, California, Burdon here wears a Slimane specific leather jacket with (naturally) rock star alike black frames.
