Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2015 Menswear3rd July 2014
The world of rock ‘n’ roll is without a doubt Hedi Slimane’s game for every coming fashion week since the day he ruled over former Yves Saint Laurent. In the latest Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2015 menswear that took place at the very end of Paris Fashion Week showcased a large collection in both mens and womenswear cultivated from the deepest roots of California culture. Get inspired by Hedi Slimane’s beautiful web diary.
It was based from the 1970s, where the height of the anti war movement, world of hippies, folk music and surfers, and war veterans unite together to create the most diversified and sartorially disruptive moment in the history of America. The youth rebellious are back once again with their signature skinny silhouette infused with ultra luxe interpretations. Hallmark pieces crafted from the finest workmanship is what fans will be expecting to salivate over the benefit of the brand in the upcoming summer season.
There is a well rounded categorical mix, designs are much bolder compared to the previous Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2014 teddy boys, featuring perfectos with intricate embroidery and shimmery applique embellishments, also available in beaded macramé blankets, velvet peasant blouses and flower dresses spotted on womenswear. Leather patchwork poncho, Baja hoodie or pony skin cape cover up cozy models. Hippy vests and studded suede jackets are the next big take innovation. Pointy toe boots with chunky cuban heels never seems to fade away, the trend continues yet again with an array of variations to chose from, we have snakeskin, suede, black crocodile, leopard print and any other form of pretentious makes available. And all of it finished off with the essential accessories of the era – fluid neck scarves, stacks of silver jewellery, and a whole lot of attitude.

Cash and credit rich buyers that thrives in rebellious rock and roll attire can continue to enjoy the splurge of runway diversification, classical designs that are meant to be sold out in a blink of commercial success. It would be difficult to argue at this point that Slimane has gotten very good at looking into the fashion’s rearview mirror to create a very literal interpretations that celebrate the past. So one has to wonder what amazing things he might be able to come up with if he ever turned his gaze towards the future.
