We’re all used to Hedi Slimane mixing it up at Saint Laurent now and his tendencies towards rock chic, so considering he has done 90’s grunge and 80’s rock it was interesting to see where he would go this season and it seems he has found himself in the English music scene. Screaming, ‘London cool’, models were decked in streetstyle texture mixes of fur, sequins and plenty of leather. This girl is too busy going out to really worry about perfecting her outfit, she’s chosen her cute dress, grabbed whatever jacket was closest, run her hands through her hair and will do her eye liner in the cab.
Glitter adorned most shoes, with the round toe knee high boot taking pride of place in a very London swinging 60’s shape. Skirts were mini and jackets were deliberately mismatched and came in a variety of styles and prints including tartan, sparkle plaid and Sherlock Holmes tweed. While it would have been very easy to, thankfully, Slimane didn’t stray too far from YSL roots, closing the show with his trademark bows, suits and wide brimmed hats, something I was personally really relieved to see still live on in his collections.
