All the Saint Laurent accessories we love from fall/winter 2017
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.
