With the debut of Saint Laurent Productions, a registered subsidiary of the house, Saint Laurent become the first luxury brand to count the full-fledged production of films among its activities.
The division, envisioned by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, is in line with Vaccarello’s assured steering of the brand into the future, while echoing the cinematic breadth and nuances of his collections. “I want to work with and provide a space for all the great film talents who have inspired me over the years,” the Saint Laurent creative director noted.
Confirming its commitment, Saint Laurent Productions will participate in the 76th Cannes Festival (16-27 May 2023), premiering as part of the official selection Strange Way of Life by Pedro Almodóvar, starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal.
David Cronenberg and Paolo Sorrentino are among the authors with whom Saint Laurent Productions has other projects for future release in the works. “These directors never fail to open my mind and, in a way, the singular, radical vision they bring to cinema has made me the person I am today,” says Vaccarello.
All of the company’s films feature costumes by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent.
