Behind The Scenes With Saint Laurent FW18 Collection

Behind the scenes at the Saint Laurent fall/winter 18 show was like taking a step back in time.


Models exuded glamour in forties-inspired ensembles with the likes of Kaia Gerber elegantly dressed in black. This show was a presentation of all thing Saint Laurent from eighties glamour to forties chic.


This was a show that made sure Anthony Vaccarello has kept the brand on the global stage and put over the message he has wanted to convey since taking over form Hedi Slimane. His message, it seems, is to present a collection for a more sophisticated, more feminine woman.


While the signatures that we love from the brand continue to be in place, Vaccarello introduced a softer side to the House for this collection. Eighties wide shoulder dresses were juxtaposed with forties glamourous evening gowns. Wide brim hats offered the sophistication the brand was perhaps missing; and colour and floral prints were out in force. Accessories came in the form of statement boots and jewellery was either not there at all or oversized and statement making.



From the head wraps to the leather jackets and cut-off shorts, this collection presented pieces that were wearable and understated.
