PFW: Hedi Slimane For Saint Laurent Makes A Statement

Drawing inspiration from the 70s,instead of trying to imitate high luxe attire with poor quality fabric like most of the fast fashion retailers of today, Hedi Slimane does the opposite with a collection that seemed pulled from the racks of vintage stores done in fine fabric.

The silver awkward platforms  hanging onto the models feet matched the very set they walked on, a metal structure emitting a eerie rainbow spectrum of colours while showering the audience and the stage in disco-esque lights. Some of the models came down the length of the runway barely dressed in skimpy clothes that reflected a trashy vintage trunk show. While others although showing less skin, still gave off the inevitable vintage bohemian vibe of YSL’s former glory days from a scandalous standpoint. Perhaps a few of the individual pieces would make a stylish addition to ones closet for next spring/summer season, but the overall look took away from the brand’s elegance and sophistication and in it’s place thought I hate to say it was a poorly executed collection.

What are your thoughts on the collection?
