SAINT LAU­RENT

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE COLLECTIONS - by An­thony Vac­carello

An­thony Vac­carello couldn’t have cho­sen a bet­ter venue for Saint Lau­rent’s spring/sum­mer show. Con­structed be­low the Tro­cadéro, the open-air set basked in the loom­ing pres­ence of the Eif­fel Tower—an apt metaphor for the night’s pro­ceed­ings, since the late founder him­self was a bea­con of fash­ion whose lib­eral and ground­break­ing take on Parisian sen­su­al­ity made him one of mod­ern fash­ion’s great­est de­sign­ers. As the Eif­fel Tower twin­kled in the back­ground, Vac­carello showed his un­der­stand­ing and mas­tery of the House’s codes, first with a pas­sage of louche shirt-and-short com­bos that were a nod to Mar­rakesh, a place in­te­gral to the story of Saint Lau­rent. Those segued into vir­ginal lace num­bers, be­fore cul­mi­nat­ing into a stun­ning cli­max of feath­ers danc­ing hyp­not­i­cally off su­per-cool mini-dresses.
