Gazing at the looks gracing the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris the past few weeks, I’m giddy with delight at the creativity and craftsmanship invested in each collection. And while the expected beauty of Louis Vuitton and Chanel makes me ooh and ahh and sigh, the show that resonates with me? Saint Laurent. Yes it’s subversive and gritty and makes me slightly uncomfortable, but it’s dramatic, bold, singular and — most importantly for the sake of brand recognition — memorable. Designer Hedi Slimane could have easily gone with soft pretty faces and perfect panty hose, but instead it’s a parade of Debbie Harry meets Jerry Hall…the morning after. I can definitely see It Girls sporting these looks at posh parties around the globe come fall!
You can almost hear Blondie’s “Call Me” can’t you?
