At the end of the last Saint Laurent women's fashion show two months ago, the public finally agreed that its artistic director Anthony Vaccarello had taken advantage of the best of the spirit of the house. The extraordinary legacy of the last century left by Yves Saint Laurent, especially that of the “late seventies ”, was coming back to life in a contemporary way, redesigned for a clientele whose young age did not allow him to know him, but of whom she knows many codes, if only subliminally. This famous “Hippie Glam” from the Marrakech period, which is also found in Anthony Vaccarello's man, and especially for the coming spring-summer season.
Presented in June 2019 in Los Angeles, a city that the creator considers as “the new Marrakech” - more precisely in Malibu on the beach of Paradise Cove at sunset, the collection has the bohemian attitude of artists with iconic style, halfway between Mick Jagger and Serge Gainsbourg. And if its ultra-sensitive delicacy distances the new-generation Saint Laurent man from the dark rock to which Anthony Vaccarello had so far accustomed them, we will nonetheless retain the timelessness of a value as sure as the trench coat, to perfection here highly desirable.
