As always in his collections, Hedi Slimane uses elements of Rock culture and music and this collection was no different. The looks this season were infused with both masculinity and femininity. The show was opened with a short dress, which hung on one of the model's shoulder, the dress had printed cherries on it and was finished with golden platforms. This silhouette was copied onto other looks too, such as a gold mini with spaghetti straps. Soon came the masculine looks, which had a formula of an unbuttoned shirt, stripped blazer, either short leather shorts, or long black trousers, finished with a tied scarf around the neck and high-heels. This look reminds me of something Anita Pallenburg or Mick Jagger would wear.

It was interesting to do research for this post, because looking at either Anita or Mick's style, it is very similar to what Hedi Slimane designs for Saint Laurent. The 70s carried an attitude of nonchalance and shabby chic and the styling was much more masculine, always finished with a statement piece. Such as the beautiful fur pieces in this show.I love the sleeve of look #5 or the green piece of look #8. I guess if you're looking for a designer who creates luxurious rock clothes, then Hedi is your man. But it will be quite some time before we see ball gowns and romantic dresses from him.

What did you think of this collection?
