Mad love, crazy love, Saint Laurent love was the thread that pulled together a three-part story at the French fashion house this season. Beginning with a Pierre Berge prose, Anthony Vaccarello tells the story of a tribal army who stormed the runway under a starry night sky, aptly illuminated by the twinkling Eiffel Tower. In the cool Autumn air women wore tribal-cool cuts, luxurious lines of lamé, feather heels, crushed velvet pants, pantaloon shorts, oversized structured jackets and layers of lace complete with peek-a-boo panelling.
Then in strode the men, uniformed in black (but far from basic) pants, which became a base for rich jackets of the Spanish, bomber jackets, beaded butterfly and satin kind.
Part three was equal mix sequins, fur and feathers as it was ear cuffs, tuxedo jackets and an Eiffel Tower embellished velvet bomber jacket, interjected every so sporatacially with flashes of royal blue, fuchsia pink and zebra print. But oh, it was the shorter than thou dresses skirted mid-way with volumes of feathers that stole hearts. Then came the crescendo as the love story unfolded with a much-talked-about bridal offering.
