At Paris Fashion Week, takes off the spring-summer 2015 Saint Laurent collection. Always rock, but more underground the Hedi Slimane vein.
Energy 70s silhouette and less pacifist and peaceful, at times very uneasy: to fashion week in Paris the Carreau du temple is home to the long-awaited parade Saint Laurent, for the spring-summer 2015 signed Hedi Slimane.
Saint Laurent SS 2015: pure rock
A rally – almost an invasion – of pure rock, pure Los Angeles (city of choice of the designer), pure underground. A riot of fantasies floral, stripes, camouflage, dots, animal prints, glitter, a minidress that are superaderenti sheaths or more soft and super-low-cut and very short mini, the shorts more easy, in jeans, or more dark, leather, for shirts and tops, jackets and jackets, to hats with a wide brim, a scarf thin and light in every sauce.
But if the seventies are the ones in the name of which opens the Saint Laurent collection Spring-Summer 2015, it is more true that those are the eighties towards which veers. Or, to put it bluntly, with which it mixes, is contaminated, it becomes dirty. With a vein grunge-indeed, grungy – and underground which Slimane likes to bring the catwalk a shining sister and darkest of Twiggy autumn-winter 2014-15. And proof suffice, on the black opaque stockings, high-heeled sandals and high, here with studs, there metallics, there still animal or color that take the place of footwear proposals then, far lower and bon ton. But you know: when the rock gets tough …
Not surprisingly, rocker of a certain level there were also in the audience. Two names in particular? Lenny Kravitz and Pete Doherty. Yet someone between Daft Punk and Phoenix.Who they attended along with many, many other celebrities, as Salma Hayek (wife of the owner of Saint Laurent, Francois-Henri Pinault) to Xavier Dolan. The reactions of the press to ss Saint Laurent collection? As is becoming a habit for Hedi Slimane, rather divided.Around a Hamlet-like question: thus established rock and roll vein of designers, where to draw the border between haute couture and ready-to-wear?
