The Saint Laurent spring/summer 2015 collection brought the most unbelievable and unexpected mishmash of clashing styles, prints, colors and clothing pieces to Paris Fashion Week spring 2015, catering to fashionisers with different personalities, tastes and interests in fashion. Hedi Slimane managed to combine Saint Laurent’s iconic style with the modern fashion trends, presenting a super diverse collection that is cool, cool, cool! This spring, the Saint Laurent woman is rock chic, but also girly, elegant, but also casual, glam and at the same time minimalist and chic. This diversity also refers to the color palette and the patterns used, as we see from timeless blacks and glitzy glam glittery hues to eye-popping greens, reds and blues, used not only for the clothing pieces, but also the statement-making accessories.
Rock chic vibes spiced up with seductiveness make the focus of the entire Saint Laurent spring/summer 2015 collection. These style notes are visible not only in the party-ready attire options and the looks featuring lots of leather, but also in the relaxed casual outfits. The experiments with various materials represent the next noteworthy aspect of the collection: we can see lots of black leather here, but also suede, denim, chiffon and see-through fabrics. As for the prints and patterns used, expect to see lovely cherry motifs used for the opening off-shoulder chiffon dress with an asymmetric hemline, stripes, classic leopard patters, spring’s famous floral motifs, playful star prints and even camouflage accents used for the military style oversized jacket topping the girly floral printed mini dress.
Wholly, the concentration of the Saint Laurent spring/summer 2015 collection is laid on short, mini lengths: we get overwhelmed by the abundance of lovely mini dresses, short leather shorts and mini skirts, as well as vintage style denim skirts. If you don’t feel confident in mini lengths, you can go for those killer classic tailored black pants, for instance, coming matched with see-through black shirts or flowy elegant black shirts, topped with Saint Laurent’s iconic blazers. The dose of seductiveness is also delivered by the abundance of the deep plunging necklines, which never look provocative.
The use of the glittery materials, fluffy fur outerwear options and the elegant turban hats takes us to the roaring twenties, providing us with gorgeous outfit options for special parties and for the days when we want to look maximum attention-grabbing and spectacular. Still, it’s the fabulous all-black mini dresses and the to-die-for black tuxedo jackets that become our favorites from the collection, becoming incredibly chic timeless pieces with lots of glam and chic.
Besides the sassy turban hats presented, the looks in the collection are also accessorized with colorful boater hats or chic black ones, as well as platform sandals in glittery hues. Thin printed scarves tied around the necks of the models bring the iconic Parisian chic to the scene.
The Saint Laurent spring/summer 2015 collection manages to revolutionize the world of fashion while experimenting with iconic Saint Laurent styles and vibes we have seen in the past. It’s a collection that can help any fashioniser revitalize her personal style and look refined, cool and up-to-date at the same time.
