The fashion world loves a bit of nepotism, and today that’s something we’re very much celebrating.
Meet Dylan Lee, the handsome son of Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson and Mötley Crüe rocker Tommy Lee, and the latest face of Saint Laurent.
18-year-old Dylan, a keen surfer and guitarist, was shot for a short film and series of black-and-white photographs by the brand’s creative director Hedi Slimane on a sunny Malibu beach in December. Rather fitting considering his mum’s most famous role.
It’s all in aid of Saint Laurent’s February 10 show at the Palladium in Los Angeles. The show will present the autumn/winter 2016 menswear collection as well as ‘part one’ of the women’s collection. The second part will be shown during Paris Fashion Week on March 7.
Lee’s introduction means we’ll almost definitely see him take to the runway at the LA show, no doubt with a flurry of other bright young things.
Slimane, who is based in the US city despite Saint Laurent being a famously Parisian label, is well known for his use of young Hollywood protegees and rock offspring.
He’s previously photographed Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, and featured the likes of Jack Kilmer (son of Val), Dylan Brosnan (son of Pierce) and Charlie Oldman (son of Gary) in shows and campaigns.
Rumours are currently circulating that Slimane is preparing to leave the French fashion house after four years at the helm. No doubt the next few weeks will confirm whether there is any truth in this, and if so, where Slimane will venture next.
If you'd like more Dylan Lee in your life (err, who wouldn't?), make sure you follow him on Instagram...
Sorry, we'll stop now.
