The new Saint Laurent collection is the male adjacent to the gypsy chic of the women’s Spring 2013 collection. Unlike the women’s, the men’s collection went more grunge with a tron of layering, plaid and distressing. To polish up some of the looks, Hedi Slimane paired some of them with leather pants and tailored jackets, as well as bringing back out his signature skinny suits.
I have to admit that I am actually quite proud that Hedi Slimane re-designed the whole aesthetic of the fashion house. I find the current inspirations would look lost with the previous aesthetic. With the current renaming and design, it works together harmoniously without sacrificing the soul of the fashion house. I am also loving that Hedi is filling the void of Christophe Decarnin right now with the distressing and denim for me. Ohh how I missed those days. See the collection yourself below.
Taylor Swift performs on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve in Times Square where she performed both “We Are Never Getting Back Together” and “I Knew You Were Trouble” before sharing a kiss at midnight with boyfriend Harry Styles.
For her performance, Taylor wore a pair of Saint Laurent’s leather pants with a red sequin IRO jacket. Overall, I’m not the biggest fan of YSL’s re-branding, but I do think these are a great pair of leather pants! I like that Taylor is wearing some edgier, designer pieces now and it’s fun to see her style change. You can buy a similar version of these in denim online from Saint Laurent for $570.
