Saint Laurent Rocks The Palladium With Unisex Collection

No contributor

Saint Laurent continued to revolutionize the male figure with its fall/winter 2016 collection, which premiered at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles last Wednesday. The collection, designed by Saint Laurent Paris creative director Hedi Slimane, was a return to the designer’s sharp androgynous profiles from the ‘90s, born then from his desire to merge couture with youth culture.

Tailored suits with hand-embroidered flourishes and fedoras on long-haired models marked this provocative collection. Dominated by unisex designs, the collection’s standout pieces included “Hedi’s Couture Cosmic Tux,” a jacket bedazzled with interstellar imagery; the glittering black “Palladium Tiger Couture Coat”; and the red velvet “Couture Caftan,” embellished with gold-thread embroidery and fringe across the back. The collection also featured five historic Rive Gauche prints in celebration of the line’s 50th anniversary.

Saint Laurent employed Montreal band PYPY to create the stellar soundtrack behind the collection. Self-described as “superdope psych-punk,” PYPY added a final jolt to the Palladium Show, tying the silk bow on top of this edgy, glamorous exhibition.
