Slimane loves a rock-and-roll homage, and he has transformed pieces of that vernacular into classics within his collection. Time and again, he offers car coats and minidresses, skinny pants and sharp-shouldered blazers. The fabrics and embellishments change, but the silhouettes remain the same.
The aesthetics of Saint Laurent are boozy and sweaty. The clothes do not look expensive on the runway although they most certainly are in stores. There is a certain wanton, tawdriness to them. They reek of rebellion and ennui.
Today, fashion aims to offer a modest aura of cool, a palpable connection to contemporary culture and ease. Luxury has become a perfect white T-shirt worn with wash-and-go hair.
There is nothing evidently intellectual about Slimane’s work. It shouts and rages, curses and moans. His models, with their dark eyeliner and wild hair, stomped down his runway practically breathing fire. His women don’t want to get lost in their head.
They don’t want to overthink or parse. Slimane has defined modern luxury, in part, as the ability to break free and not care. At a time when everyone is pulled in countless directions, who wouldn’t want to turn away? Slimane’s work taps into that desire and then some. There’s no walking away. There’s no retreat. The collection leans in close. And yells."
