Yesterday in Paris, Saint Laurent pierced the sky—and the emotions of fashion patrons from all generations—with an unforgettable show. Over the past few years, its Creative Director, Anthony Vaccarello, has turned the show into a must-see spectacle for Paris and the world, but this year was a uniting of those that love the brand regardless of place, time, or age.
Opposite a sparkling Eiffel Tower, guests lined one side of a black catwalk in stadium seats, while countless spotlights punctured the stratosphere. The spirit of Rive Gauche was envisioned for Spring/Summer 2020, presented in an elegantly masculine-feminine way with immaculate tailoring.
There were long, fluid dresses, sultry black tuxedos, embroideries from the 1970s, short and high boots at the knee, and more, but the show-stopper was the overall picture. With supermodel Naomi Campbell closing the show (one she’s walked in for over 30 years), Saint Laurent’s past and present merged for a layered, timeless silhouette.
