Saint Laurent X FW15

When my last Amsterdam Fashion Week show on Sunday started, Saint Laurent also showed its new collection in Paris. I may not really be in a position to complain, but boy did I want to go to that show in Paris. After Hedi Slimane took over at Saint Laurent, the brand established itself to become my absolute favourite. If I could afford it, probably around 70% to 80% of my wardrobe would be Saint Laurent. The 'horrible' truth is different.

Style.com states that Saint Laurent's clothes are "to those who care, the coolest on earth". I sense a certain negativity in that, but at the same time it seems to be a general consensus in the fashion world. What Hedi Slimane does at the brand is by many considered 'normcore' as Suzy Menkes writes. Clothes with zero fashion statement. Menkes also states though, that she has to disagree and that she thinks that "the new Saint Laurent has integrity and a certain offbeat glamour". Much more similar to my own perception of the brand.

This show follows both the brand's own direction and the general direction in which menswear seems to go. Menswear is gradually embracing femininity and that has been visible in Hedi's Saint Laurent since day one really. Now more than ever though, with some great fur coats, see-through shirts, embellished jackets, animal prints and pointy toed, (high)-heeled boots. I just find these developments very exciting. Maybe the general public is not ready for all this, but I have trust that the Jared Letos and Harry Styles-s in this world will rock those (zebra-printed!) fur coats and see-through blouses, showing the world that it IS in fact very cool.
