“For a long time, I wanted to transpose this meeting between Paloma Picasso and Yves Saint Laurent, whose importance few realize in the designer’s creative journey. It is a moment to which i am sensitive as a designer, because for me it is the defining moment when Saint Laurent’s fashion creativity became a style.”
Saint Laurent SS22 collection is an ode to emancipation, and a call to subversive seduction, something that has always been intrinsic to the house. A celebration of a woman who is singular in every way and effortlessly inventive. Anthony Vaccarello let himself get inspired by those women that had always been great sources of inspiration for Yves himself such as Paloma Picasso “she had wedge heels, a turban on her head, and things she had tinkered into clothes…” and that’s how the collections turns into a tribute to independence of spirit, to the beauty that comes from freeing ourselves from other people judge. Masculine glamour, austere lines revealing curves, genres dissolution are key concept to Anthony Vaccarello’s lexicon who firmly stats what next season will be about: sharply structured jackets, radical high-waisted jeans, spandex colourful jumpsuits: harmonious antagonisms and audacious style.
