Saint Laurent Leather and Denim Zip-Detail Biker Jeans

30th July 2014

Keeping loud details simple sums the new Saint Laurent Leather and Denim Zip-Detail Biker Jeans that has finally returned well after a year since it was born. It’s initial retail price in Fall Winter 2013 has significantly increase and despite costing more than $1,250 today, the calibration of elements and characteristics found in this pair of biker jeans is still considered as a unique success, which leads it as a statement-making bargain fashion piece from the Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2014 menswear collection. I bought mine from Boombayeh earlier this month, many thanks to him for making this possible, you can find them here on eBay.

At a distance, the ferocity of the multi-symmetrical zipper detailing on leather ribbed patchwork runs across the knee and thigh-high with contrast textures played against the dark flat black denim. These key features draws common observation and has transformed the basic Saint Laurent signature skinny denim jeans into something much more prominent. The new Saint Laurent Leather and Denim Zip-Detail Biker Jeans is also cut a slight more skinnier than the previous Fall Winter 2013 edition, it features a new 16cm hem that fulfils the brands constitution, the jeans fits true to size in low waist measurements. Knee zippers can be unfasten to create a destroyed approach while increasing flexibility in movement of legs and comfort, however I personally felt the unfastening of zippers actually deteriorate the refinement simply because it brings out the nature of crudity in style. Learn in detail about the first generation Saint Laurent Leather and Denim Biker Jeans.

Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2015 Menswear

3rd 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. Read more about my recent preselected Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2014 wishlist collection.
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.

Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2014 Wishlist

20th June 2014
Extended underneath here is the new Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2014 menswear collection that speaks for itself. And after more than three seasons since it was first debut and rechristened from former YSL, Hedi Slimane has turned the small conventional collection into a distinctive formula on it’s head. There is a lot to love in the latest Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2014, and by far after exploring the Luisa Via Roma’s offering, this is the ideal collection to invest among the antecedent menswear that I will buy this season, but first let me show you around this collection.

For starters, there is the style-proof Saint Laurent Teddy Varsity Leather & Wool Bomber Jacket that has made a resurgence in a variety of colours, additionally you may even find an animal fur print to make it stand out from the crowd. These options has been personalised to meet most expectations, considering it’s first inception in Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2013, the Saint Laurent Teddy Varsity Jacket has prosperously triumphantly in the marketplace. Worn by countless renown celebrities in the universe, it is now one of the most desirable jackets available distinct from its deep contrast stripes and leather-detailing feature, pricing stays fair and relevant at an affordable $2,390. My picks from this season is to stay safe with the classic Saint Laurent Black Wool & White Leather Varsity Bomber Jacket, there is however a different burgundy colour which delivers a more luxuriant impression.

Prints on tops – shirts and t-shirts may not offer options as generously available at Givenchy. However a few selections will keep your choices simplified with guaranteed repetition wear. Let’s start talking about t-shirts, at a first glance there is a beautiful Saint Laurent Black & White Shifted Striped Cotton T-Shirt that features a sharp edged print revolutionized and deviated from the typical stripes, out of usual. But yet acceptable in a fact that it engages smart creativity in design, which is something I would definitely go for. On the other hand, if you would prefer something more dressy, there is the Saint Laurent Confetti Print Silk Shirt scattered with contrasting square shapes in random sizes and placements, makes the overall concept fun and appropriate for most statement occasions. 

At the infamous skinny-tight denim section, the categorical bottom-wear mix of Saint Laurent specialty, the long awaited Saint Laurent Leather & Denim Zipped Detail Biker Jeans made available for Fall Winter 2014 has finally returned to the shelves. I knew that this pair of biker denims will make a comeback after it’s successful sales turnover by the end of year 2013. This pair of particular denim mix leather biker is so popular that supply exceeded demand, it was limited and sold out in an instant at every corner of the globe. The resell value has topped more than 200% of it’s official retail price, landing it’s residual value of $2000 for a second hand in excellent condition! However, those without any luck during Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2013 menswear collection like me, can now stand a better chance in owning one from the Luisa Via Roma’s pre-order collection, the price to pay however has increased to $1,390 in this season from what it used to be $950 in 2013. Furthermore, the styling has been significantly improved to 15cm, unlike the predecessor model that has a larger hem, not to upset those who are looking forward for a wider leg-fit. Read more about the Saint Laurent Leather and Denim Biker Jeans Fall Winter 2013 here.

What about the Saint Laurent footwear collection you may ask? Designer shoes these days is known to be the essential pinnacle of successful style-making. If camel suede leather cuban heels is not your cup of tea or because masculinity in cultural dimensions forbids your inner exploration, this season’s concept in footwear is generally taken out from the old-timer’s punk wear. Featured in leather top cap-toe with intriguing cross woven detailing and single-style monkstrap – places the latest Saint Laurent 30mm Suede & Brushed Calf Creepers to look like every bit of inspiration replicated from the Mugler and Underground series. I can’t tell if this was a collaboration or if Hedi Slimane was deeply inspired from the two designer brands that you can hardly distinguish when compared with the Underground Apollo Smooth Leather Monk Shoes and crepe soles taken from the Mugler Double Monkstrap Leather Creepers. This chunky funky shoes has a large and thick crepe soles that makes the footwear design heavily distinctive on ground to compliment the dark skinny silhouette that you will find a comfortable style position in today’s male model’s dream. It will be interesting to see how you think about it.

Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2014 Menswear

20th January 2014

Hedi Slimane’s continuous desire to leave reference from the YSL roots has left positioning the brand in a rock ‘n’ roll world. The Parisian designer has been completely repackaged towards an iconic brand of his own sartorial vision. Shop the MR PORTER new arrivals — Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2014.

Hedi Slimane’s talents has made a new world order at Saint Laurent, the catwalk continues stuck to his comfort zone creations: skinny pipe pants, long teddy blazers, oversized coats and leather jackets. Each version getting its own embellishment like printed lapels, silver studded, panels of animal printed fabric, fur or contrasting white leather details. A backward inspiration as every aspects of the collection reveals an update of the rebellious attire from the 1950s. Overhaul vintage pieces came back from the past with revised cuts in the same metallic shimmers sequin embellishments and styling proportions. The key piece in the show, and in the wardrobe of any wannabe rebel, was the classic black leather biker jacket which Slimane sent down the catwalk four times since his inception to the brand.

Most of the stuff aren’t just for show, the iconic style is highly wearable and will surely leave second glances. Taking into account the criticism he’s received in the past for being too commercial that eventually what Zara did lately with it’s exclusive ‘Beat‘ collection. Although fashion shows are known to inspire fantasy, but Saint Laurent is a different story, the designs are too relevant, too grounded in contemporary culture to be considered truly imaginative.
This is fashion in it’s commodified form—wear these clothes and you too will be cool. It would be nice to see Slimane bring as much more forward and experimental momentum to his clothing as he does the rest of his job. That is not to say this was a bad show, just one that felt like a medley of tunes already known by heart.

Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2014 Wishlist

7th December 2013
After two seasons of a grungy, casual wardrobe, this show sharpened up Mr. Slimane’s message and the image of 21st-century Saint Laurent. Sequin and textured jackets, perhaps with shiny tuxedo lapels or with a sharp motif running down the backbone. That silhouette might be extended to a coat, or bulked up with a blouson top. Just once, the pants swelled at the thighs into jodhpur cool. Saint Laurent was no reality check. You would have to be a thrusting, super-skinny teenager to wear the clothes as they were shown.
Frankly speaking, dressing head-to-toe in Saint Laurent is a fashion strategy that will not get you noticed. However these classic styles are terrific wardrobe staples that offers great versatility and could probably be one of the most important key essential piece of clothing you should ever own. The monochromatic Saint Laurent Varsity Wool Gabardine & Leather Bomber Jacket has returned along with the Saint Laurent Classic Zipped Nappa Plonge Leather Jacket that will work well with different outfits.
Match them with an everyday Saint Laurent Black 15.5CM Skinny Stretch Denim Jeans is a set of good examples that will wear well and thereby anyone should be able to tell its distinctive high tailoring and quality. These are very important garment that you will be able to reply on again and again even after many seasons. See the entire Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2014 Menswear in High Resolution.
