START body

Set at the base of the Eiffel Tower, Saint Laurent proves runway shows are back and bigger than ever before. The brand’s Spring/Summer 2022 show staged an epically large runway circling a wall of lights with Paris’ iconic monument in the background as the platform for 62 new 80’s-inspired looks for the Parisian fashion house.

Before Yves Saint Laurent’s ’66 Le Smoking tuxedo suit, suits on women were seen as taboo. The show’s inspiration is on the meeting of Paloma Picasso and YSL and becoming his muse.His design held femininity and elegance while also incorporating menswear, sparking a trend of suits in women’s fashion that never looked back. In Saint Laurent’s own words, “Chanel freed women, and I empowered them.”

For this collection, Creative Director, Anthony Vaccarello elevates their archetypal effortless and simple cool fashion. Sleek black looks, what they do best whether a slinky barely-there dress or a structured suit, create a foundation for this collection. Big floral patterns on skin-tight spandex unitards pair with big bright waist cinching belts. Shoulder pads exaggerate the silhouette of every suit. With the addition of bright leather gloves, chunky geometric earrings, patent leather pumps, and oversized circular glasses, the whole line echos the ’80s more-is-more style approach. Bright reds, blues, and purples are weaved throughout the collection, dawning unitards, dress, and pants.

Looks are updated with styling like, stone-embellished see-through tanks under suit jackets, or shape like, cropped blazers. Purses tucked into pants or belts add to the easy lax aesthetic.
