SAINT LAURENT MENSWEAR SS’19
A few days ago in New York, a new men’s collection SAINT LAURENT, presented by Anthony Vaccarrello, took place. It happened exactly 40 years later as this city applauded to Yves Saint Laurent himself – in 1978 the Frenchman presented the fragrance Opium, and in the first row he sat Cher and Truman Capote.
Wakarello already had Kate Moss and Lauren Hill with her daughter, and the collection itself became the quintessential seventies fashion – an important decade in the history of the House. “I wanted to show how the city lived at that time and how relevant it all looks today,” the Italian designer said. “Naturally, one could not help remembering Studio 54 and the colossal influence of this place on the whole of New York.”
On the podium, you could see an abundance of black and gold images with silk shirts, narrow leather jackets and cigarette trousers. Obligatory elements were wide-brimmed hats, a variety of scarves and narrow belts. New York glamor designer combined with the wildness of the Midwest, and in the finale of the show he released guys on the podium in narrow shiny pants and with a bare torso sprinkled with silver glitter.
