SAINT LAURENT PERMANENT COLLECTION CAMPAIGN: DYLAN BROSNAN BY HEDI SLIMANE
Hot on the heels of images featuring Jack Kilmer, Saint Laurent rolls out another installment of its new ‘Permanent Collection’ campaign. Photographed by Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane last month in Los Angeles, actor Pierce Brosnan’s son Dylan is front and center in black & white images. The 17 year-old film student and musician wears a variety of Saint Laurent looks that encompass both the casual and formal attributes of its trendy man.
Pierce Brosnan's son makes modelling debut, without help from his father
Introducing Dylan Brosnan, whose good looks caught the attention of Hedi Slimane on the sidewalks of Malibu, Los Angeles
BY OLIVIA BERGIN | 19 NOVEMBER 2014
With a handsome actor father who has been wooing cinema goers for several decades, it comes as little surprise that Dylan Brosnan possesses such photogenic features - but his famous dad had no part in securing his impressive modelling debut.
The 17-year-old's good looks and long, lean physique caught the eye of Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane, who cast and photographed him in the fashion house's Permanent Collection line after seeing him around the Los Angeles beach city of Malibu.
Dylan, the son of Irish Bond star Pierce and his second wife Keely Smith, is a film student and musician residing in California. He has a brother, 13-year-old Paris, and a half-brother and step-brother from his father's marriage to Cassandra Harris, who passed away in 1991.
Dylan's debut sees him showcase the wardrobe staples from Saint Laurent's perpetual collection of skinny jeans, Breton tops, classic Western boots and cashmere pieces. He joins an impressive roster of musicians by posing for Slimane's artful lens; Marilyn Manson, Marianne Faithful, Daft Punk and Courtney Love have all collaborated with the brand in some way.
Slimane's aesthetic and work often spawns thousands of copies, so we wouldn't be surprised if young Brosnan's door is already being beaten down by agencies and brands wanting to work with him. What with Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Patrick and Stephen Baldwin's daughter Hailey carving out careers as models, being a Hollywood star's offspring is big news right now. However another Dylan has already beaten him to the model agents' books - Sean Penn and Robin Wright's genetically blessed daughter.

Meet the New Faces of Saint Laurent Men’s: Dylan Brosnan and Jack Kilmer
Liza Darwin Industry November 19, 2014 — 03:29PM
Whether Hedi Slimane is featuring shaggy-haired indie musicians or doe-eyed models, his Saint Laurent campaigns are more than straightforward advertisements. The monochromatic portraits double as introductions to the next big things in the worlds of fashion, music, and film. We can always count on Slimane to round up the newest crop of cool kids, and the stars of his latest men’s campaign boast some impressive Hollywood connections.
Last night Saint Laurent announced 17-year-old Dylan Brosnan as the new face of the brand’s permanent men’s collection. Reportedly discovered by Slimane in Malibu last summer, the film student is the son of actor Pierce Brosnan and journalist Keely Shaye Smith.
He joins fellow California teenager Jack Kilmer (son of Val), who was announced as a campaign face last week. While they might both be celebrity progeny, they’re clearly budding stars in their own right. Brosnan is a musician, and Kilmer starred in the Gia Coppola film Palo Alto earlier this year. Not to mention, Kilmer’s already walked for Slimane in his Spring 2015 psych-rock runway show. Since Slimane has a reputation for recruiting his new faces for the runway, keep an eye out for the rising duo come Fall ’15. In the meantime, get a look at the campaign here.

A New Icon By VICTOR JOHANSSON Photography BRAD ELTERMAN Styling RICHIE DAVIS
How were you discovered as a model?
– I was getting a coffee in Malibu and I ran into Hedi Slimane. Hedi had no idea who I was but luckily my friend Kevin was there and sometime afterwards Kevin gave Hedi my contact information (because I left without actually meeting Hedi). Honestly, I had no aspirations to become a model. I thought you had to be some ripped Abercrombie and Fitch looking dude to model.
Your dad is also a style icon – what have you picked up from him fashion wise?
– I’ve picked up a lot over the years, literally, I’ve been borrowing his clothes since I was in middle school. Lately I’ve been wearing his 60’s style neck scarves which be bought for a character in Paris. I used to wear a lot of his jackets and shoes too before I had any of my own that looked any good.
What’s the best clothes store in LA?
– Hidden Treasures, a thrift store in Topanga Canyon, is my personal favorite. I get a lot of my vintage clothes there.
How important is it for an artist to look good?
– In my opinion it’s important for an artist to look good but style and look shouldn’t overshadow the art itself. An artist’s style should help draw attention to their art but looking good isn’t a requirement and if the artist looks better than they sound it’s sort of pointless. If you think of The Beach Boys, they made some amazing music but they were a goofy looking bunch of guys and that’s ok since it’s the music that lives on. David Bowie is a great example of someone who balanced looking good and being an amazing artist.
How would you describe your style?
– It’s hard to say because I don’t think about style or fashion too much. I wear lots of black jeans, striped or floral shirts, leather boots, and denim, military or leather jackets. I’m pretty influenced by the styles of the 60’s and 70’s just because everyone looked more interesting back then. I generally mix brands and do a retro kind of thing with current clothing styles.
How did your music career start?
– I guess it started when I was in 10th grade. I became obsessed with My Bloody Valentine so I bought a bunch of pedals and started practicing and playing at my friend’s coffee house. At one of those little shows/gatherings I met my band mates who were also performing and I’ve been playing shows and recording with them ever since. This past fall though I started recording under the name the Raspberry Blonde, which is my main project. I just record all the demos myself into a phone and then bring them to my friend Jeff’s studio so it’s just the two of us producing the music.
How would you describe your sound and influences?
– I’ve been influenced by 60’s pop, glam rock, folk and psychedelic music. My favorite band is The Beach Boys mainly because of Brian Wilson but I also really like T. Rex, music produced by Phil Spector, The Beatles, early Pink Floyd, The Zombies, The Doors, and Nick Drake. In terms of newer music Christopher Owens from Girls and Kevin Parker from Tame Impala have both been huge influences along with MBV and Elliott Smith.
Where does the name Raspberry Blonde come from?
– Raspberry Blonde actually came from one of my ex-girlfriends. While I was playing shows with my first project Nautilus, she thought we should make a band and call it that. We never did form a band and then we broke up but I took the name anyways because I liked the way it sounded with the music I’m making now.
Which song is closest to you?
– I wrote a song called Belong, which seems to be the most popular song I’ve written and it’s the only one I can listen to without feeling a little embarrassed. It’s my favorite instrumentally and lyrically and I really don’t think I would change anything about it.
Do you have any crazy fan encounters?
– When I was in Serbia I walked out of the hotel and someone asked for my autograph. It doesn’t sound that strange in hindsight but nobody had ever asked me for an autograph and I wasn’t sure why anyone would want my autograph since I’m just some random dude so I got a little spooked and went back inside my hotel.
