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.

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.
