Sam Rollinson: Saint Laurent has my heart
Sam Rollinson could live in clothes by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent.
The British model has been lucky enough to work with some of the biggest designer brands including Burberry, Chanel and Balenciaga. But when it comes to her personal style, Sam can’t help but have her favourites.
“Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent; I would happily live in his clothes, and Karl Lagerfeld – his passion is unparalleled,” she told British magazine Stylist.
To create an enduring look, Sam thinks every woman should have skinny jeans and printed shirts. As for holiday attire, it’s all about patterned bikinis, denim miniskirts, shorts and simple T-shirts.
The star does have some luxury items on her wish-list though.
“I’ve just shot the Chanel Boyfriend watch campaign and I’m definitely getting one when they come out – for special occasions!” she revealed.
After starring in Burberry’s 2010 campaign, the beauty has had the chance to strut her stuff at fashion weeks all over the world. Sam, who comes from Doncaster in Yorkshire, cannot believe the opportunities she now has as an in-demand model.
“Shooting the Balenciaga campaign with Steven Meisel. Working with Mary McCartney on the LABEL shoot,” she replied when asked about some of her biggest career moments. “Also opening the S/S 2014 Chanel show in Paris was pretty surreal.”
Sam enjoys spending time in the French capital, but her heart always lies a little closer to home.
“I love working in Paris, because it’s so beautiful and I love the food but nothing beats London,” she smiled.
