5 Reasons To Make Summer 2013 A Saint Laurent One!

The beauty of fashion talk is that we don’t have to agree on the various sartorial angles of a situation. I actually enjoy it more if you change my mind. Or I change yours. Based on my previous experience (with Ralph Lauren), you must suspect that I’ll be in the “like” bandwagon this time too. Saint Laurent’s Spring Summer 2013 collection was a very appealing one, in my opinion.

Hedi Slimane’s vision of next summer’s woman involves some key elements that are powerful enough to make a fashion statement all in keeping intact their commercial appeal. Although I fought really hard to keep myself from posting every single look from Hedi’s new collection, the 5 elements I’d love to keep from this Saint Laurent show are:
{1} The big hats & capes: because we all love a bit of disguise. (go on, you know you want to see more, so hit the jump!)

{2} Pointy Mary Janes: because we loved Mary Janes ever since we were little, more so when they look so crazy beautiful like these Saint Laurent Spring 2013 shoes!

{3} Ruffles, sequins, lace: all the ultra feminine ingredients to a seducing wardrobe!

{4} Corset – like belts: because we all dream of wasp – like waists.

{5} The Cowgirl – comfy but strong feeling of the collection: because Tom Ford was getting to snobbish for words.

I liked some pieces individually.
As a whole, this collection was boring and previsible IMHO.
If colour trends really are forecasts for the general public mood, I think I will take my family to move away from Europe next Summer.

Well the general public mood isn’t cheerful. I would love to move away from Europe now!!Yesterday!! But where can I run too?

As for this much awaited fashion show to see on video and avoiding reviews it didn’t took me that long before I bursted out singing “Rhiannon!!!”

Indeed some nice pieces and many nice memories….taken by, taken by the sky…..

ana, Cathy Horyn wasn’t invited to this show. Again. As I read at The Cut. A real good piece and until now also great comments.

Alison Mosshart, though I like her, would take a fourth job to afford this as I read somewhere else? Alison dahling, girls whom wore once clothes like this didn’t had a job or a just one job or just job at the side or they bought these at thriftstore and markets for a nickle and a dime. ;) :)

Mmmm!That says a lot.
As you previously said Riana, at the middle of the show I was bored. I was seeing lots of Rachel Zoes and and Taylors Swifts and Nicoles Whateves walking the runway.

I was avoiding to read the reviews until I formed my (debatable) opinion but
Vogue UK said they expected more.
Tim Blanks from Style.com said the same.
and now Cathy.
mmm… PROBLEMATIC!

As I said I always avoid previews before I have stated my own opinion. I have read some reviews too.
Perhaps people did expect too much?

Yes lol, I can imagine too who’s going to wear this especially at the summer festivals I guess ;) :D

To me it’s just like seeing Ralph Lauren, mais in Paris :) and with darker shades of black. Also: I was under the impression that everything was made to measure Kate Moss’s sense of style.

As for the Taylor Swifts & Rachel Zoes – you’re right, ana. Now that you mentioned it, my head started spinning with so much celeb appeal going through every stitch.

Oh, Riana! I can only imagine what it’s like to afford something like this, let alone wear & tear it during a summer festival!
