A History of Daft Punk’s Visual Identity

With the release of Daft Punk’s new album Random Access Memories but weeks away, we thought it’s time for a quick visual history showcasing the development of the duo’s iconic identity. Starting in 2001, with their second studio album Discovery, Daft Punk transitioned from wearing novelty Halloween masks to the iconic robot helmets we all know today. From that point on, the duo have gone through as many visual changes as they have albums. Though Guy-Manuel and Thomas’s overall vibe has stayed constant, the helmets are tweaked and costumes grow more stylish with each passing release. Case in point: today they are decked out in custom Saint Laurent Paris garbs designed by Hedi Slimane.
