Electro Powered SLP : The Union of Daft Punk & Hedi SlimaneMonday, April 15, 2013Aaron Reese
The Ralphnerd likes to celebrate the union of menswear with just about anything, but I can't think of anything more ingenius than the compilation of music and fashion. That brings me to the legendary French-electro house duo Daft Punk, who made their highly anticipated return at this year's Coachella festival.
The dynamic duo were commissioned for the debut Saint Laurent Paris runway show in 2012. And now they'll join the likes of Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson in Saint Laurent's Music Project. Hedi has always been a fan of rock legends and tying them back to the roots of the historic fashion house. The pairing of SLP and Daft Punk seems to be an expected, yet enthralling collab.
The public got a chance to view their new SLP looks on the stage of Coachella, while the the band debuted the teaser for their new single, 'Get Lucky' featuring Mr. Star Trek himself, Pharrell. It has also been confirmed that the duo have produced two tracks for Kanye West's upcoming album.
I know, that was quite a bit to take in: so I'll cut this short and let you revel in the genius of the upcoming collaboration. Check out Slimane's Glitter, 'Le Smoking' jackets below, and a clip of duo's new single below.
Also, I'm obsessed with Pharrell's jacket here.
