YSL Casts Female Model for Menswear Campaign

Hedi Slimane, the creative director of the high-end luxury brand Yves Saint Laurent, has selected Dutch model Saskia de Brauw to front the campaign for their spring/summer 2013 menswear collection. This comes on the heels of female model Casey Legler being signed to Ford Models exclusively as a male model.

Dean Mayo Davies of  Dazed Digital states:

“With the same clothes, shoes and accessories available for men and women, the designer is giving his female clients the keys to expression – be the epitome of the Saint Laurent Parisienne or the lead singer in the band, it’s up to you…Fashion is a discipline dealing in identity and expression that should anchor to the spirit of our time – this, the end of the literal, is a very welcome thing.”
