California dreaming ain’t never gonna stop

The word “luxury” was barely used at Paris menswear shows for spring/summer 2015 and Hedi Slimane is to blame. His work at Saint Laurent is hard as a rock, it’s rolling faster than any luxurious norm can achieve, it’s humane and full of history -in this case, California during the 70’s.saint_laurent10Always uncompromising Saint Laurent is an absolute hit and the luxury conglomerate Kering which own the brand is more than happy with this very 21st century rebranding. In an attempt to democratize fashion his collection is his audience and vice versa.saint_laurent12 Youthful and bold, the rebellious rock and roll attire is for the young at heart. Drawing inspiration form the American anti war movement of the 70’s, from Woodstock and Fleetwood Mac and Hippies and Fairies, exploring the surf culture of people who loved to sing folk rock late at night, Slimane’s signature slim silhouette fit perfect in beaded macramé blankets, velvet peasant blouses and leather patchwork ponchos. An amazing collection that came with a very rock blast from a a flowery past.saint_laurent7saint_laurent11saint_laurent9saint_laurent4saint_laurent8saint_laurent6saint_laurent3saint_laurent1saint_laurent2saint_laurent
