Saint Laurent SS14

It’s interesting how in natural human behaviour, we tend to want what we cant have or what we may have missed out on, and this is well known by one Hedi Slimane (Saint Laurent Head designer) who has shown once again, in this his 3rd RTW collection for the house, his affinity with times gone by this time taking shape in the 1980’s. While Slimane’s 90’s grunge Fall collection caused major controversy among the fashion elite, through this he managed to single-handedly reignite the decade into everyones wardrobe, thanks to the twenty somethings demand for ‘the cool grungey era’ that they like soooo wish they had have been around for. yolo.

So last night Slimane decided to direct everyone back again to the wardrobes of 80’s  rockstars for a pit stop involving some of the great traits of the decade such as lame, one shoulder ruffles, sequins, skinny ties and mid heel rounded points (the ‘sensible’ peeps will be wrapped. And so will most other women, who can now wear a low comfortable pump and blame Saint Laurent for being on trend, instead of blaming their inability to let go of the 80’s). I love the slick finish of this collection and I’m continually baffled by the way Slimane can present a very obvious (and usually ugly) inspiration/direction in his collections and somehow make it look shiny, new, attractive and desirable again. I mean if I said I was lusting after a high waisted animal print sequinned skirt, you’d probably say ‘Great, the costume shop is down the road’ but after this collection, you’re probably now forced to say “Yeah, its a shame there is no Saint Laurent shop in Melbourne, just wait until Zara does a good copy’. See what I’m trying to say? Great. So now enough of my jibber jabber, enjoy the video (which I highly recommend watching as it sets the mood perfectly) and the pics, appreciate his impeccably structured suits and ponder your future channeling an 80’s rockstar…
