Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello of the House of Saint Laurent was herd saying backstage “ That girl of Saint – She wants to have fun. She’s not depressed . She wants to enjoy LIFE !” This was clear as the back drop of the open air runway was a amber lit Tour Eiffel on a balmy night in the city of LOVE.
The core DNA of the Master Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent was woven all through this sexy collection . His obsession with the city of Marrakech and other global cultures inspired collections always . There were elements that the legendary designer loved such as peasant blouses, rich brocades , luxe embroidery , and animals prints . Silhouettes such as the famous bubble was done in duchess satin and studded in mirco mini shapes to give away to legs for days !!!! In true YSL form there was a amazing usage of feathers , feathers and more feathers that danced delicately around the ankle straps and on knee high boots.
The lights began to dance on the Eiffel Tower like bubbles in bottle of Moet Chandon to introduce all of the sexy evening pieces such Les Smoking jackets with exposed bras peaking from behind sheer lace . There were more bubble shapes that came in sequins, feathers and bold Zebra .
The spirit of the late Yves Saint Laurent and co-founder Pierre Berge was definitely felt in Paris sky that evening .
Bon Nuit . J’adore . Merci
