Saint Laurent: The Resurrection of Siouxsie Sioux


Autumn/Winter ’15 Collection at a Glance

With his new collection, Hedi Slimane celebrates the wild and glamorous party nights of the punk era. A touch of rock, a touch of glamour, a lot of ripped fishnet stockings. Then some mini-crinis, cigarette trousers, glitzy shaggy fur coats, and dresses slit so high that flashing your underwear is unavoidable. Red lips, wildly layered hair and dark black eyelids: a combination of Siouxsie Sioux, frontwoman of cult British post-punk band Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Courtney Love in her most grungy moments. Naughty and not at all nice. Fantastic.

Everything that the Sex Pistols used to wear: leather chokers, metal chains on shoes, narrow belts, braces, ties.

Our Favourite
The double-breasted, black woollen cape. Underneath a mini dress covered in silver sequins, combined with a leather choker and the unavoidable fishnets. Guaranteed to keep (rocking) till dawn. There’s certainly nothing prudish about this vampire look.

The Show
The catwalk resembled a stadium. With blinding backlights and austere scenery. The only thing missing was the live band. What a shame.
