Watch: Hedi Slimane's directional debut for Saint Laurent

Neo-ballerina shot in b+w.

Hedi Slimane makes his directional debut for Saint Laurent with this film for the new Ballerina line, and boy is it lush. Debuted by Dazed Digital today, its stars the supremely beautiful model / dancer Lida Fox against an eerily-charged tune by Cherry Glazerr, 'Trick or Treat Dancefloor'.

Talking points include: 

Lida Fox is stupidly spellbinding as she leaps and glides in between moments of being a straight-up, no-questions-asked babe. 

The Ballerina archetype is imbued with Hedi's undying grunge aesthetic. The Saint Laurent ballerina will jeté and plié in leather goods, and she can casually chuck on a flannel over the top. Breezy. 

Lida wears Hedi's 'newly designed classic ballerina shoe'. This is great and all, but we're more interested in the wildly mesmerising thing as a whole. Cue cessation of these musings so you can actually watch it for yourself:
