Different personalities come together in Anthony Vaccarello’s eclectic Summer collection for Saint Laurent. Each look is an expression of a dynamic individuality created by mixing elements of different decades, diversified by clashes of color. As Paloma Picasso’s vintage re-styling inspired Yves Saint Laurent in the early ‘70s, timeless icons’ codes are blended and reborn for today.There was plenty of black tonight, not least in the form of the shallow black temporary infinity pool along which the leggy legion of Saint Laurent women stomped in their variously spangly, Western-influenced Le Smoking tuxedos, rich velvet band-boy jackets, corset-waisted pants, tiny dresses, and of course, shorts: shorts in black or gold leather, shorts in the fab form of sequined playsuits with exaggerated glam shoulders. Boyish silhouettes hold a feminine confidence while walking the Trocadero and its water path of white palms. Tailoring from the ‘60s interpreted in jersey renews the traditional couture approach. Saint Laurent audacious elegance is subtlety evoked to close the show.
«It’s a silhouette created by a variety of pieces, inspired by different eras and timeless icons. Eclecticism is freedom to build yourself, express your own personality and respect your complexity». Anthony Vaccarello
