Arriving soon at Le Louvre is the Saint Laurent Spring 2019 collection. A superb rendition of the soul of a truly special fashion house. Saint Laurent has been shifted and shaped over the last decade finding its way into the new fashion frontier, however with the arrival of Anthony Vaccarello at the helm, there appears to be a return of the soul to this brand.
For the hotly anticipated runway, creative director Anthony Vaccarello brought his guests back once again to the Trocadéro in Paris, under the imposing Eiffel Tower. There were 95 looks in total. From tailored jackets, minidresses, kaftans, swimsuits, mini shorts and skirts, to plateau sandals and dramatic hats.
The show was cast as a “strong, convincing, glamorous and polished collection”, was a clear reference to the founder of the Maison, Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent.
Vaccarello, in the backstage of the show, said that he was inspired by the founder’s gift of reimagining classical codes to create something new.
The Italian designer wants to follow in the footsteps of the Master, looking back in the archive of the fashion house, paying tribute to this house’s extraordinary talent and history.
It’s one of the most iconic pieces of the entire Saint Laurent universe. Worn for the first time in 1969 by the woman who called herself ‘Yves’s sister’, Betty Catroux, the safari jacket is one of the symbols of the fashion house and a recurrent item in many collections.
For the SS19 the creative director shortens it and pairs it with black skinny pants and golden boots.
Of all kinds: tight or oversized, ruffled worn underneath velvet blazers, printed all over or completely sheer, low-cut or pussy-pow, shirts have been part of the Saint Laurent’s DNA since its inception. Anthony Vaccarello continues the tradition, adding a rock’n’roll and western-inspired mood.
The return of branded clothing is something we’ve played with for a couple of seasons now. As loyal followers of beautiful, quality brands we often choose pieces that are a little more understated. We have, however always been big fans of FUN in fashion. No one wants to take themselves too seriously after all. Saint Laurent’s take on its branded casual wear is loads of fun and we want every single piece in this capsule collection!
Leather remains a staple item from the Saint Laurent must-have list. This season, along with the iconically cool biker jacket we see super fun splashes of gilt and gold. The perfect HERO piece for any fashionista. Think you have it all? You don’t have this jacket!
