Leather, Lace, and Serious Sleeves: Saint Laurent’s Eighties Flashback

By Katy Donoghue

September 29, 2016

Designer Anthony Vaccarello took a trip back in time with Saint Laurent‘s spring/summer 2017 collection, back to the life of Yves Saint Laurent, and the famous women of his time. Looking at archival photographs, he found particular inspiration in Paloma Picasso and the 1972 “Scandal” collection she gave life to.

The collection felt oh-so-eighties with highly exaggerated sleeves, lots of leg, and dramatic sweetheart necklines. There was loads of black leather—in bustier’s, boy’s jackets, minis, and more. Pulling from a cornerstone of the fashion house vocabulary, Vaccarello played with the tuxedo, going wide, cropping coats, and slouching pants.

As we’ve seen in other collections this season, a lot of attention was given to the shoulder, whether in angular voluminous outcroppings, one-shoulder tops, or overall sheen, lace, or sequins.
