Late last night, the fashion industry’s nightcrawlers made their way to the Saint Laurent show, which took place in Paris. In case you were sleeping, Savoir Flair has gathered all the news you missed and need to know about, below.
(So Much) Glitter and Glamour
The club scene is about to get even hotter thanks to Saint Laurent’s new collection, which was dripping in glitter and glamour. Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello worked with Irish stylist and fashion director Alastair McKimm, who has also collaborated with fashion-forward and edgy brands like Alexander Wang, The Row, and Calvin Klein, for the styling of the runway show.
Hiandra Martinez, one of the few campaign faces of the Parisian brand, opened the show. The Dominican model was then joined by Binx Walton and Mica Arganaraz on the runway.
Bureau Betak, the New York-based production company behind some of the fashion industry’s most beautiful runways and sets, made very few changes to the show space, which was in the unfinished section of the Yves Saint Laurent headquarters.
The Aviator Glove
Gloves aren’t exactly a must-have accessory in the Middle East, but that’s about to change thanks to Saint Laurent’s new-season single statement glove. Reminiscent of a luxe shearling aviator jacket, it is one key piece of the collection that’s not to be missed.
The Disco Boots
Anthony Vaccarello understands the night. Thanks to him, all you’ll need to hit the town next season is a pair of perfectly slouchy statement boots – completely covered in rhinestones, of course. See now, buy now please?
The beauty look summed up in three words? Raw, rugged, and real. Bare-faced beauties rocked the runway with effortless hair ‘dos and clean, fresh faces, providing a stark and stunning contrast to the collection’s structured glitz and glamour. Backstage, makeup artist Tom Pecheux turned to eyeliner to add a rocky, grungy feel to some looks, creating strong, greasy lines that looked like they’d been smudged by mistake. The result? A beautiful “I slept in my makeup” look, perfect for the club-scene vibe.
