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.
