Autumn/Winter ’17 Collection at a Glance
Anthony Vaccarello is surfing on the ’80s wave. Thanks to him, Saint Laurent showed menswear alongside women’s styles for the first time in the label’s history. Though there was no confusing which styles were aimed at which gender. This autumn, Vaccarello sees women in non-stop party mode. Instagramable, seductively short dresses were paraded down the catwalk on the construction site of the brand’s new Parisian headquarters. Black, glitter, chocolate milk-leather embellished with frills, asymmetry, slits, sequins and structured shoulders.
Men, on the other hand, wore clothes that could be taken right off the catwalk and hung in your daytime wardrobe. The male models’ styles were ultracool, yet ultrawearable. In his notes on the collection, Vaccarello let us know that it’s all about Monsieur Saint Laurent’s subversive approach to clothing. A radical reimagining of his heritage.
