Limited to 1500 copies. A side audio, B side etching. Yo! My Saint is a three-pronged artistic endeavor incorporating music, film, and fashion. It’s not just a song, or a film, or clothes. It’s a project, and the culmination of creativity erupting from Kenzo’s Spring / Summer 2018 collection.

Karen O composed a profound narrative with this track - it builds to an arresting crescendo that fades into a gorgeous lullaby coda. Ana Lily Amirpour, the visionary behind the exemplary Iranian vampire noir A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, helmed the cinematic expression of the venture and worked closely with Karen (who also has a brief cameo). “It’s an amazing artistic endeavor and a conversation between two women,” explains Kenzo’s creative director Carol Lim. “A female musician and a female director. That’s kind of the starting point of this. We’re so excited for it to finally come out.”
