At the helm of Saint Laurent since 2011, Hedi Slimane goes from strength to strength, revitalising the iconic French house with an injection of rock’n’roll only he could balance with the brand’s classic elegance.
When Hedi Slimane took the reins at one of fashion’s most beloved houses, the change was more significant than a simple name change from Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent. And although the reviews among purists were initially mixed, it wasn’t before long that Saint Laurent bags, shoes and ready-to-wear were at the top of everybody’s wish lists. Monsieur Saint Laurent’s luxurious sense of class still firmly intact, the new generation is youthful and a little badass but with an inherent glamour to every piece of every collection.
Saint Laurent blends serious glamour with urban essentials for SS16. This season is brimming with the slinkiest negligee dresses, cut from an array of soft fabrics and palettes. We love the floral interludes, coveted bomber jacket, tailoring - and of course, denim. Do as the house does and pair one of those gowns with the brand's signature leather jacket or black blazer for that Saint Laurent look.
