Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent have always embodied a divisive range of inspirations. His fascination with youth culture and the west coast music scene are fundamentals of his creations, but for Spring Summer 2015, mixed with an unexpected offbeat styles of fringe band jackets, poncho, sheepskin vest, army surplus, embroidered jeans, amulets, snakeskin boots, garage band...the list goes on. Sounds incohesive, not when the attitude is all about bringing these elements together and creating the multi-dimensional Saint Laurent male.
What captures me for this Spring Summer 2015’s ‘Psych Rock’collection are the camouflage pieces, a slight surprise for me for the french fashion house. Glamourous in its attitude, the pieces are not to be absorb at its surface value, but for you to layer it up with all the other influences in the collection. Throw in some outback cowboy, bohemian or rock star attitude, these camouflage pieces renders the wearer a new sensibility that only Saint Laurent can achieve. But for those wanting to interpret these pieces at surface value, camouflage as what it is, the masculine print crafted with utmost precision in cuts and couture-like details make these belong in glitzy clubs than in the trenches.
I will take those backpacks and that interesting military jacket with gold fringe details anyday. Cool stuff!
