Saint Laurent Fall 2013

I see Hedi Slimane’s point, and I like it, but that’s because it is exactly how I dressed in high school twenty years ago. Right down to the fishnets, plaid coats and buckle boots. I’m not sure how well it will go over with Paris YSL die hards though. I imagine there will be a lot of talk about how California has “corrupted” YSL. Whatever. I also get the whole nostalgia thing, I’ve been going through an all black phase paired with sweaters again recently too. Something happens in your 30’s, as you near 40 (or get there and pass it…) and suddenly you want to go back, even for a moment. The easiest way to do it is with some black leather boots and plaid shirts. What he showed with this new Saint Laurent collection may not be a new story but it’s not without some rocker chic merit, though I’m not sure who will want to pay YSL prices for St. Mark’s Place threads (which, Anna Sui already does at designer prices). Just saying… Punk is beyond officially dead.
