Hedi Slimane has photographed three legends of the music world dressed in Saint Laurent in an exciting new campaign.

As part of his ‘Saint Laurent Music Project’, Slimane has previously shot pop and rock stars including Daft Punk, Marilyn Manson and art rock legend Kim Gordon.

Now musical icons Chuck Berry, B.B. King and Jerry Lee Lewis have all been photographed by Slimane in a new series titled ‘Architects of Rock and Blues’.
