All the Saint Laurent accessories we love from fall/winter 2017
Anthony Vaccarello's fall collection is proof that Saint Laurent is still one with the cool kids
The saying 'like father, like son' is decidedly apt with the men of Saint Laurent. Its strong lineage of designers share a profound similarity to the house's founder — we're referring to their propensity for the intangible, their aptitude for attitude. In a typical high school setting, you have the jocks, the cheerleaders, the geeks, the wallflowers and of course, the cool kids. That troupe of rave-going teens shrouded in a fog of blasé so thick, you'd think their insouciance would rub off on you just by being in their immediate radius. As it turns out, the fashion circuit runs in a parallel world.
There was Yves with Mick and Bianca Jagger in Studio 54, and in that same vein, Hedi Slimane refurbished the Saint Laurent of the millenium with a seductive rock 'n' roll image some 50 years later. Here too, is where Vaccarello fills their shoes.
One look at his mini, mini after-dark dresses and streamlined '80s-inspired silhouttes is enough to tell you that the Saint Laurent boy and girl will not be Netflix and chilling on a Friday night. No, her fall 2017 Pump Rollers will leave a lingering impression long after she's breezed out the bar. Her box-like Tuxedo bag, the next purchase on your credit card. His 'Smoking Forever' sneakers, enough to cajole a bartender to pour double shots on the house to get into his good books.
This season, Vaccarello's word is as lucid as the neon sign on the wall of a club: Yves' legacy — and that effortless attitude synonymous with his predecessors — lives on. In his hands, Saint Laurent is still the cool crowd's cred and currency. His fall 2017 accessories speak for themselves:
