Saint Laurent is a french luxury brand and Olivia Singer, executive fashion news editor of Vogue, highlights the key moments from the Saint Laurent spring/summer 2019 show.
The keys of Saint Laurent Fashion Show by Saint Laurent
Paris could be tropical
I’ll say one thing for Saint Laurent: the brand certainly knows how to put on a show. While the open-air Trocadero beneath the Eiffel Tower is now familiar territory (the team staged the spring/summer 2018 there too), this season took things a step further. The sparkling monument was as lovely as ever – but the installation of giant, Vincent Lamouroux-designed luminous palm trees positioned against the archetypal Paris backdrop, was newly photogenic.
The models walked on water
It was simply a shallow pool! It doesn’t read as giddyingly exciting on later reflection but, when the first girl walked out onto it, her snakeskin cowboy boots splashing through its surface, it looked pretty impressive. Theatre! Drama! Who doesn’t want a bit of that in fashion?
Knee-high boots and platform heels are replacing wellies
Brits ought to be particularly charmed by this point: no longer need our good shoes be reserved for dry weather. Suede and velvet be damned, Anthony Vaccarello proved that the right pair of patent black knee-highs can make light of any puddle. Or, even better, choose very high platforms which will elevate you above the waters. Pair with a very, very short skirt and you needn’t worry about getting your hemlines damp.

Saint Laurent: 1972 costumes inspired the collection
While the collection comprised an eclectic tour of assorted eras (“Eclecticism is freedom to build yourself, express your own personality and respect your complexity,” said Vaccarello), the star-spangled moments took their cues from archival designs: specifically, Yves Saint Laurent’s 1972 costumes for pop idol and girl-about-town Sylvie Vartan. As ever, Vaccarello employed artistic licence in adapting Yves’s codes to the modern day – but the Sylvie dresses were a reprisal that proved how timeless fabulous costumes can be.
