Nothing says Saint Laurent like drug-abusing rockers. So, the news that rocker Zachary Cole Smith, one of Hedi Slimane's latest poster boys, has been arrested for heroin and ecstasy possession (along with his girlfriend Sky Ferriera, who was the face of the Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2013 lookbook) is not exactly news at all. In case you don't know his name, the DIIV frontman walked in Saint Laurent most recent menswear show in June and is the face of quite a few of the house's online images, in addition to starring in the ad campaign with fellow wild child Cara Delevingne. Smith and Ferriera (pictured after the break) were taken into custody on Saturday evening and released on $1,500 bail–and later that same day, DIIV played a concert in Hudson, New York.
Smith took to Twitter to denounce the reports, saying, “What you’re reading is a police blotter, not the outcome of a court case. These cops wanted to fuck us, and they did. Sky did nothing wrong.” This is in conflict with reports that Ferriera was found to have ecstasy is here possesion and resisted arrest by physically fighting off the police officers. This whole mess is very Saint Laurent. Don't you think? They are expected to appear in court on Monday.
