GSaint Lau­rent Spring/ Sum­mer ’15 et­ting a han­dle on Spring’s lead fash­ion sto­ries (the chic sportif, tif, the ’90s-meets-’70s lovein, the Cana­dian­dian tux re­dux) is sim­ple enough – it’s al­ways just a trend re­port away. But track­ing down the in­di­vid­ual pieces thathat cap­ture the mood of the sea­son with­outout scream­ing “new trend!” (we’re try­ing ing to be so­phis­ti­cated and non­cha­lan­tant here) re­quires a higher level of study. dy. And find­ing the ones that flat­ter andd func­tion, then work­ing them into ourr daily wardrobe groove – now that, if I may say, is an art form. Not to worry, we’ve done the (long) leg­work soo you don’t have to. Voilà, your springg shop­ping starts here. THE SHRUNKEN JACKET Once e it was all about the four-sizes-too-big boyfriend yfriend jacket. Now it’s about your six-year-old daugh­ter’s. That’s right: The over­size jacket has slimmed down. It’s a lot more at­trac­tive than it sounds, with nat­u­ral shoul­ders and neat col­lars, and oddly, it works over much the same kind of clothes as its more im­pos­ing an­ces­tor. Al­tuzarra’s and Thom Browne’s hiplength shrunken blaz­ers are la­dy­like and fit­ted, with old-school, waist­nar­row­ing prop­er­ties. At Coach, ev­ery kind of bomber hasas had an up­grade. Another stealth run­way hit (seen ev­ery­where from Saint Lau­rent to Derek Lam) is an ul­tra­soft tan suede Ideally it will be slim enough to tuck into waist­bands aist­bands for a cropped ef­fect or worn loose, as a new kind of cardi­gan that will make your old kindd want to re­tire to Palm Springs. THE SHOES Only yes­ter­day, alll shoes had to be four inches high and look like a pro­to­type for Bat­man’s new­est car. “Oh, my God,d, that’s so not a state­ment,” we would sigh when con­front­ed­nfronted by mid­heels and nor­mal­ity. But this year, state­ment tement footwear comescome in all heights and shapes,shap from sportsin­spiredin­spi flat­forms at MarniMarn and Marc Ja­cobs to S Saint Lau­rent’s saucy plat­forms,platf Louis Vuit­ton’s and Proenza Schouler’s spec­trum of block heels, and Valentino’s and Chloé’s knee-high gla­di­a­tors.glad­i­ato This is what we’ve learned: Wear the heel and style that work for you, and – re­peat af­ter me – you don’t have to suf­fer to be beau­ti­ful. THE TAI­LORED DENIM TROUSER This is denim for women who don’t do denim. Sculpted, of­ten dark, and dis­creetly de de­tailed with strate­gic, body-en­hanc­ing pock­ets, waist­bands,wais and con­trast stitch­ing, it could be­come yo your wear-wear sta­ple. The worka­day jean – from LouisL Vuit­ton’s boot cuts to Tod’s stovepipes to Gucci’sGucc cropped legs – has em­braced lux­ury as never be­­fore You and I will pay
