The Saint Laurent runway show tonight, was without any doubt the most anticipated show of Paris Fashion Week. Since Hedi Slimane’s take-over of the French fashion house and the renaming of the ready-to-wear line to Saint Laurent, the brand has been the talk of town in the fashion metropoles around the globe. So, did Mr. Slimane deliver today?
We are not exactly sure. In a way he delivered exactly what was expected – a heavy rock inspired look featuring check shirts, leopard knitwear, a lot of black and of course a lot of leather. Are we disappointed? Actually not really. The looks were good, the details convincing and the collection is extremely wearable – leather jackets, great denim, well cut coats, varsity jackets, etc.
What do you think? Too expected, or exactly what you wanted to see.
