Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

The Saint Laurent brand has always had its own sway in the fashion industry, considering its founding as a luxury fashion house in 1961 by partners Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge. Today, the Saint Laurent label is known for its modern but iconic pieces, which include tuxedo jackets for women, while also bringing to us lovely ladies ready-to-wear pieces, leather goods, shoes and jewelry. This is the house responsible for bringing to our lives the beatnik look, described as the media stereotype of the ‘50s and ‘60s displaying violent film images along with cartoonish depictions of real people, the safari jackets for both sexes, rather tight pants and tall thigh high boots.

This season, the thigh high boots appear only once in the whole of the 60-piece-long Saint Laurent fall/winter 2015-2016 collection, while we are given a rather trashy style of a Pretty Woman theme to deal with here. That includes see through black chiffon blouses, neoprene micro dresses, tight leather pants and torn fishnet stockings found throughout. Add the bright red lipstick and the bold dark eyes with way too much makeup added and you have the hooker look that doesn’t necessarily appeal to most of our senses other than curing our bodies that it is the look of a woman, who would require a rather low fee for a bump in the night.

There are a few cute pieces with the massive amount of tulle creating a tutu like designs. Actually, the first piece of the collection appears almost to be a punk-like wedding dress that a showgirl may wear for a quick hitch in Vegas. It could pass as a lovely prom dress as well, but not with this combination we see here. The blazer is nice enough but the makeup, the fishnet stockings and the black booties really give it a totally different vibe. And then we get into plunging necklines and slits up the thighs, even on faux leather mini dresses with zips to the side. Glittering miniskirts appear all over the place as well, while the torn stockings have us wondering what Saint Laurent designers were thinking.

There is one particular dress that meets our fancy with its tiger like print and shimmering body in black and greyish silver, but that slit up the center is dangerous, even though the dress itself falls to the ankle in length without it. Black and white stripes also appear all over; black and white combinations in general are a common trend, not just in this collection, but on Paris Fashion Week runway shows as a whole.

It also appears as if the whole grunge type theme also includes black bras showing, either under see-through blouses or as the only item of clothing under a black leather jacket, worn over a sliced up black leather pair of pants. Some of the lovelier pieces are the baby doll dresses though with the full A-line skirts falling to mid-thigh and looking like the Saint Laurent we expected to see. The combination with torn stocking throws us off though, while the asymmetrical hems on the miniskirts also leave us wondering why sexy has been turned into trashy with this latest in the brand’s Fashion Week collections.
