Known for its sleek, enigmatic silhouettes and understated coolness, Saint Laurent's latest podcast Talks proves that its radical influence isn't limited to the sartorial realm.

A podcast akin to a contemplative Q&A, Talks will feature filmed conversations with notable personalities who are close to the French Maison and are trailblazers across the fields of cinema, photography and art. Set in a minimalist black-and-white setting, French journalist Augustin Trapenard
engages in intimate conversations with each guest—unravelling insightful narratives and groundbreaking revelations about their lives and careers.

Beyond fashion editorials and the Talks podcast, the renowned photographer and French Maison have also jointly published two books: Saint Laurent Babylone and Notes About My Work. The former is a limited-edition coffee table book that showcases all of Teller's Saint Laurent campaigns and serves as Vaccarello's tribute to their partnership. Similarly, the latter is a 48-page book curated by the French Maison but told through the lens of Teller himself, offering a deep-dive into his artistic process.
