Saint Laurent AW 15

Yves Saint Laurent has been one of my favourite designers since I became seriously interested in fashion about 5 years ago. I loved his designs for Dior (the trapeze dress) and for his own label (Le Smoking). 

Now Hedi Slimane has taken the helm, Saint Laurent has embraced its rebellious, rock chick edge and it is oh-so-cool. If I could wear one label for the rest of my life it would be YSL. The fishnets and ripped tights are so me, not to mention the leather and all-over black. A male model friend once said to me: "I went to a brand that was very Aya today... All black." When he revealed that it was Saint Laurent I almost died. 

I anticipate the YSL show every season, and last night was no disappointment. I loved the mini dresses with panty skimming slits, the shaggy fur and leopard prints. I particularly liked the leather trousers with cut-outs up to the thighs, paired with a sheer blouse *free the nipple* And of course there were gorgeous tuxedo suits.

On the accessories front, pointed black boots ruled the catwalk. Most were in a sleek, ankle height style, and some were piled with chains, but my favourites had to be the thigh highs with zip detailing. Most looks were without bags - the Saint Laurent girl is too cool to carry - but I came across this little beauty with netting... need

On a beauty side-note: it was all about the Siouxsie Sioux eyes and lips were full and red.

I'm going to find my shredded fishnets. Can't wait for the next show in September.
