The freshly-appointed Creative Director brings his signature sexy style to a chic black-and-white shoot

Saint Laurent has never been a brand to shy away from anything risqué. Whether it's in the form of gender subversion à la the 1966 Le Smoking, (a woman in a suit - gasp!) or a dress on the runway designed to be worn with a single bare breast as recently as Spring Summer 2017 - Anthony Vaccarello's first season at the brand's helm - the French fashion house thrives on the thrill of confidence and sexuality.

Released overnight, the campaign shot by Collier Schorr features a smouldering cast of supermodels including Freja Beha Erichsen, Binx Walton, Lexi Boling and Yasmin Wijnaldum. In various states of undress, at times wearing little more than the label's doorknocker earrings, the pictorial campaign builds on the NSFW visuals of the #YSL04 - Evening Part 1 film released towards the end of the last year, above.
