SAINT LAURENT PFW 2018: THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKIN'
SAINT LAURENT ROCK N ROLL ARMY OF MODELS TAKES PARIS FASHION WEEK BY STORM
Under the night Parisian skies, with the Eiffel Tower right next to it, the Saint Laurent show took place in a contemporary box-like structure. With big, bright spotlights moving around not only on the runway, but outside as well, tourists and outsiders were given quite the show and had them wondering what was going on.
Black everything. Lace. Velvet. Leather. Embroidery. Fur. Tassels. It is not new for a designer to mix and match, but
Anthony Vaccarello did it in such a smooth, elegant, yet bold way. Pieces were accessorized with hats and mostly black booties for the shoes, with the exception of a few delicate, black feathered-heels, and white heels adding some contrast to the collection.
Layers: blazers and jackets had a big moment on the runway, being a key element and adding “just what was needed” to the looks.
We see that 80s throwback again, with the big, prominent shoulders making a debut in another runway. But the collection did not only consist of bold shoulders, we see a few pieces that are the opposite, with that oh-so-loved off-the-shoulders look. A perfect balance of simplicity and extravaganza was achieved with low necklines and bold shapes.
Although most of the looks were all black, Vaccarello did not leave out the color lovers. Switching it up, we see a plash of bright, sparkly colors in embroidery-floral pieces, making quite the contrast from the previous looks.
Drastic Minimalism: Super short shorts and dresses on young models with never-ending legs.
Once again, Anthony Vaccarello explored Saint Laurent with maestria.
