Saint Laurent – Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 Collection in Paris
A chic and hippy spirit at Saint Laurent Just like for the women, Hedi Slimane invites us to the Carreau du Temple in the center of Paris, for the Saint Laurent Paris menswear collection. A dark room, impressive games with light for the staging, and very loud but beautiful music (this time by Mystic Braves who composed the soundtrack especially for this show), have become routine procedure. The men always arrive with the same attitude; very thin and young with long hair and big hats. This time, the designer transports us to the seventies, from Morrocco to Spain, without of course forgetting to sprinkle some Yves Saint Laurent codes throughout the wardrobe. Suits, smoking jackets, adorned men’s waistcoats, biker jackets strewn with sequin stars, nonchalantly worn big foulards, capes or even luxurious versions of ponchos and of course djellabahs… the list is long and there appear numerous ideas for this always chic yet rock’n’roll wardrobe. The silhouettes keep on coming and the energy that exudes from this collection does not ebb, on the contrary it increases right up to the end which is as quick-witted and as shy as Hedi Slimane herself.
