Saint Laurent Goes Where the Silver Wind Blows

By Pearl Fontaine

April 29, 2021

Saint Laurent’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection “Where the Silver Wind Blows” made its virtual debut this week, juxtaposing the house’s elevated ethos against a suite of temperamental, outdoor landscapes. Across rocky hills, over glacial terrain, and near great rumbling waterfalls, the cast of models trudged through treacherous gray scenery, accompanied by dramatic orchestrations that gave us the impression this collection might make its wearer feel ready to take on anything.

Unlike the scenography, the collection offered a flair of bourgeoisie, exemplified in more-is-more accessorizing, plunging necklines, thigh-high boots, and ultra-mini hemlines. Taking cues from the wardrobe of musician Peaches, an air of cult looks kept the mood light through elements including metallic jersey garments, jewel-lattice bralettes, and large tufts of fur—like the cuffs adorning a cropped brocade blouse or composing a style of plushy hats. The collection also highlighted a series of sets referencing 1960s tweed suit styles, like a collarless blazer and skirt in blue, worn over a silver top, or a matching red pairing worn open without a shirt.

Styles we’re still thinking about include a gauzy sheer top with flowers covering the wearer’s chest like a bra; a retro look composed of a gold metallic skirt, printed sweater vest, and rust-hued collared blouse; a sequined set in black with a white bowed statement collar; and a body-con look with cut-outs up the sides, featuring an off-the-shoulder silhouette. Looks were styled with a selection of glittering accessories, like diamond-dripping waterfall earrings, layered necklaces featuring an enamel flower motif, and skinny jeweled belts.
