Paris Men’s SS15: Saint Laurent Does Rock ’n’ Roll

By Codi Mohr

July 2, 2014

It was the British, or perhaps the French, invasion all over again as Saint Laurent’s spring/summer 2015 presentation transported the audience back to the 60s. A theatrical representation of psychedelic rock bands down to a single black suit/white shirt-clad band manager, Hedi Slimane attempted to bring back the days of the Beatles and Pink Floyd.

Western references gave models a cowboy vibe as they paraded down the runway in wide-brim gaucho hats, fringed jackets in army surplus camouflages, woven ponchos, and snakeskin boots. Metallic details glittered in starburst patterns on jackets and pant legs and dangled from fringed necklaces against bare chests from open jackets or unbuttoned shirts. With the exception of the few scattered womenswear looks and the strangely out-of-place conservative suit, all of the looks came with a pair of solid black or patterned jeans so skinny they appeared to have been painted onto the models backstage.

With a vintage color palette of burnt oranges and browns, patterns like floral, paisley, and miniature polka dot prevailed. Saint Laurent has turned festival season into a reincarnation of the Summer of Love.
