SAINT LAU­RENT

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Collections Report -

Hanne Gaby Odiele set the tone when she marched out in a wool cardi­gan thrown over a baby-doll dress, fish­net tights, and heavy black boots. Thanks to Hedi Sli­mane, grunge is of­fi­cially back. If his Spring de­but was buzzy, his Au­tumn trib­ute to the ’90s had peo­ple chat­ter­ing for weeks. De­trac­tors ar­gued there weren’t any lofty con­cepts or ground­break­ing orig­i­nal­ity, but it is hard to deny th­ese pieces will fly off shelves. The styling may have given it an un­der­ground, street non­cha­lance but in­di­vid­u­ally the clothes were ex­quis­ite. The over­sized cardi­gans were mo­hair and cash­mere, the skater dresses were lamb­skin, and even the fish­net tights were be­jew­elled. Some said Sli­mane’s col­lec­tion lacked Saint Lau­rent’s so­phis­ti­ca­tion but Saint Lau­rent him­self al­ways aimed to shock and pro­voke, and Sli­mane did just that.
