With illuminated, white palm trees and a water-filled runway right in front of the Eiffel Tower, Saint Laurent’s Spring/Summer 2019 show in Paris was loud, sexy, Bohemian and influenced by the classic ‘’rocker’’ aesthetic – part of the Saint Laurent DNA. All was about one thing: sexy dressing a la française.
There was plenty of black tonight. Western-influenced Le Smoking tuxedos, rich velvet band-boy jackets, corset-waisted pants, tiny dresses, and of course, shorts to high-waisted options: shorts in black or gold leather, shorts in the fab form of sequined playsuits with exaggerated glam shoulders. There was also leopard print, wide-brim hats and crown-like headpieces.
