John Waters Suits Up for Saint Laurent’s Fall/Winter 2020 Campaign

START body

Famous for directing camp-filled, cult-classics Pink Flamingos and Hairspray and for his repertoire of bold, flamboyant suits, John Waters shows a more subdued look in Saint Laurent’s new Fall/Winter 2020 campaign. The filmmaker dons a double-breasted tuxedo with a polka dot cravat, showing off the fashion house’s penchant for tailored menswear.

However, Waters does not shy away from his usual eccentricities. He pulls a face in one image shot by David Sims, and in the campaign video, he speaks about breaking boundaries.

“Transgression is when you break the rules and make people laugh,” Waters says in the clip. “It’s really mind control.”

Before Saint Laurent officially released the campaign, Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello shared the images on Instagram, saying that he was “very proud to have worked with John Waters for the Fall.”

Waters is no stranger to the fashion conversation–he’s long been a Comme des Garçons follower and friend of the house. The camp aesthetics of his films put drag queen Divine on the map, and together, they pushed the avant-garde into the spotlight. Last month, Loewe released a capsule dedicated to Divine, inspired by his filmography and style.
