Addressing the legacy of YSL at large, Saint Laurent’s PFW’s runway both followed suit of what we might expect from the Parisian fashion house, and gave the audience an unexpected twist.
Saint Laurent PFW AW19 oversized shoulders
Watching the models take to the runway, there were two clear takeaways from Anthony Vaccarello’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection. While everything remained daringly short on the lower half, shoulders were expanded out with padded shoulders and masculine tailoring up top.
Strong shoulder coats were worn over thigh-revealing dresses and low cut sheer tops. Elsewhere in the Creative Director’s collection, the shoulders protruded out on dresses and blazer jackets, too.
Feathered boots, jewel-embellished swim caps and polka dot tights were the go-to accessories of the Saint Laurent show.
But things took an unexpected turn as the lights dropped, and the neon collection began with a show of fluorescents. There were striped jackets over polka dot shirts, mini dresses with dramatic shoulder details and ostrich feather ruffle dress finished with a belt.
