His girl is definitely a party girl, with a hidden agenda on the side
I would have never believed that I would dedicate a blog to Hedi Slimane and his Saint Laurent, but I am.
The Spring/Summer 2014 collection was different, I saw a bit of Yves Saint Laurent in there especially in the suits. With Hedi at this point in time, his collections will never appeal to every woman but only the young, edgy and cool, hence Edie Campbell opening the show. This time there was a change, he put out many suits and obviously the little party dresses he loves. High voluminous one shouldered asymmetrical shapes, in metallic colours.
The suits were sharp, close to perfection and androgynous looks when he paired them up with slim ties and bow-ties. The dresses were inspired from the 80s, it was like looking at my mum’s closet when Carrie Bradshaw was in her teens. There was a black and white chequered blazer with leather lapels, which I absolutely want.
The suits in the collection were as present as the dresses, tailored to perfection. You had them in black, leather and even a grey one, pants in cigarette shapes and tight at the bottom. It reminded me of the 1966 "Le Smoking" from Saint Laurent and the tuxedo.
Only short body-con miniskirts, leather, skater dresses in different prints, golden colours, even lipstick lips and shiny leopard print material. Buttoned up shirts were very revealing in sheer material, oozing sex all the way. The hair was messy and the make-up was grungy, pale skin and dark eye liner all around the eye.
The bags were the same as the season before but they were smaller, square shape with a long thick chain and a small little leather grenade bag with spikes in black leather.
The shoes varied from pumps with short heels pointed with bows, studs and lace ups in leather, leopard print, snake skin and shiny latex. The jewellery was chunky, in gold and silver with diamonds. Collier necklaces and bangles, and even chain bracelets. His attention to detail was indisputable.
His girl is definitely a party girl, with a hidden agenda on the side whilst rock and LA are definitely inspiring him. The last suit that came out with the drop V-neck will have me waiting in line next season for it.
Overall the collection was one which will attract many buyers, and the fashionistas will want all of it, the stores will copy everything and the rich girls will definitely go straight to Saint Laurent to buy.
We now got the idea of Hedi Slimane's offering of Saint Laurent and I am finally getting accustomed to it.
