We need to talk about this collection from the one and only Saint Laurent before I burst with joy. I cannot express my love for this runway show, every single one of the looks showcased perfectly sums up my ideal style. The amount of Cobain and Jagger vibes coming from it excites me to no end, it's unreal. As soon as I saw the chisele jawed male with Kurt Cobains hair and Mick Jaggers face, I melted, and it's not even about models personal appearance! They all ooze cool complete with 90's grunge vibes, I'm so obsessed. It feels like we've taken a step back to the night of a Hole concert and selected people from the audience to walk the catwalk. Think Aerosmith, Motley Crue and Poison all in one place, I know, I could fucking swear it's that cool, oh wait...
I don't know if a lot of you know this but I do have quite strong feelings towards a certain Cobain (I have the man tattooed on my arm) but we'll save that for another day when there isn't so many other men to talk about. I couldn't get over how much the gentlemen modeling the Saint Laurent garments looked like Kurt especially having long bleached hair and his iconic white sunglasses, it's almost uncanny. The cardigans, plaid shirts and converse just made up the look even more.
Not only is there an array of perfect mens clothing but there were a few womens looks that were just as awesome. They featured baby doll dresses with big chunky boots and leather with the occasional neck wear - I mean, a bow-tie?! That reminds me of a phase I had where I wanted to dress in a suit and wear a bow-tie because men could so why couldn't I? I took 'menswear' to a whole new level and kitted myself out with a pant-suit from Newlook and a bow-tie from Topman and topped it of with a pair of black high-top converse, from then on menswear has always been a love of mine. This runway definitely gave me the chills and reminded me of how much I adore mens fashion.
Of course, I can't end this post without mentioning the patterned blazers, coats and obviously shirts. I am actually drooling. If only my bank balance allowed me to kit myself out in every single one if these looks then I could die a happy girl quite honestly. I haven't been taken back by a collection in what feels like forever so hats off to you YSL for making my knees week and my heart melt, you rule.
If you head to their website there's lookbook slideshow right on the homepage which I've been staring at for ages. So much inspiration on a fashion and photography point of view it's all just flowing right on out of me!
