WANTED: Burger Records Musicians

It sounds like a request for background musicians, but guess again. It’s the call of a famous French fashion house and it’s lured an up-and-coming musician you may know. Saint Laurent’s creative director, Hedi Slimane, has selected—among other locals—Rex Tyler Osterkamp, frontman for O.C.’s Rexx, to model in a Saint Laurent men’s fashion show in Paris. Osterkamp is among a growing list of local musicians snagged to strut the catwalk for the famed designer line. Check him out in stills from last weekend’s show in the City of Lights:

Osterkamp tells us he’s under contract with Saint Laurent and not at liberty to discuss how and why he and other O.C. musicians, including 19-year-old twin brothers Wyatt and Fletcher Shears, were chosen from the record label—but for a lowdown on this new fashion-music merger, read the Shears’ account on The Daily Beast: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/08/20/meet-saint-laurent-muses-wyatt-and-fletcher-shears.html
