At its mainstay location in front of the Eiffel Tower, Saint Laurent’s usual flair for sex appeal was revisited this season, with a heightened focus on latex.
For its latest line, Anthony Vaccarellowas inspired by the 1990s—from the salons to the nocturnal places. Stuck between discipline and risk, those that are in the spotlight are clad in cashmere and latex. Skin-tight pants were paired with ladylike blouses with big bows around the neck, topped with a furry car coat with exaggerated shoulders; dresses—with plunging necklines and daring slits—were tapered at the side of the waist with an attached belt, paired with thigh-high latex boots; oversized blazers were equipped with shoulder pads and deep side pockets, seen atop a bralette up top, and paired with a flowing neck scarf; and barely-there lace bras that crisscrossed around the neck were worn as tops, paired with a high-waisted latex skirt and boots, a gold necklace that snaked around the collar bone, and a red belt to perfectly match the shade of lipstick.
For FW2020, Saint Laurent’s well-manicured girls and bad boys are bringing the smoke.
