Liza Thorn: non stop Hedi-nism

One half of rock duo Starred explains why her obsession with Hedi Slimane borders on the fanatical.

“He’s the real motherfucking deal” Liza Thorn, the bleached-blond singer, an inspiration for Slimane’s SS13 LA grunge collection, growls about Saint Laurent’s creative director, Hedi Slimane.

“Hedi used our song ‘Call from Paris’ on Saint Laurent’s new website when it launched, so I flew out to see his first show. You know how when you buy a concert ticket the shitty seats are ‘GA’? My ticket happened to say ‘GA’ and I was like, ‘Fuck man, I came all the way over here!’ But it was front row! His shows are like going to a rock show.”

“I was living in an apartment in LA and Hedi came over to photograph me. He reminds me more of somebody in a band as opposed to a ‘fashion person’. He’s just really fucking generous and so laid-back.”
