Saint Laurent’s Heidi Slimane rocked the end of Paris Fashion with a surfer styled collection with a hint of contemporary notes. There were over 60 looks in the complete collection, giving critics as well as fans much to admire, and of course critic.
The collection was entitled, Surf Sound, “A Tribute to Contemporary Californian Surf Music Culture.” The Southern Californian artist, Billy Al Bengston, was an inspiration for the collection, as he was associated with SoCal motorcycle culture in the 60s.
The models strut down the runway to a soundtrack specially made for the show, composed by Cole and Max Becker and recorded by the band, Swimmers, in Oakland, California.
There were lots of stars in the audience; Selma Hayek Pinault, Jane Birkin, Betty Catroux, as well as Johnny Hallyday. Pierce Brosnan was in attendance as his son Dylan walked in the show.
Many of the looks were completed with Kurt Cobain-esque white sunglasses in tow, others with trucker hats.
The night ended with YSL logo shaped confetti falling from the ceiling; all in all, a successful night for Saint Laurent.
