Anthony Vaccarello set the Paris skyline on hearth remaining night time with a blinding Paris Fashion Week 2017 display that ratcheted up his hard-edged, glamorous imaginative and prescient for Saint Laurent every other notch – or a number of…
The surroundings couldn’t were extra dramatic. Guests sat out within the open beneath the night time sky in floodlit, stadium-style seating on the Fountain of Trocadero. The well-known vacationer spot is up shut and private with the Eiffel Tower, which used to be so within reach that it looked to be towering over the runway, like an enormous, Paris-perfect set.
Strict directions on the invite supposed that we had been all provide and right kind in our seats 15 mins ahead of the 8pm showtime (principally, a fashion-month miracle – such is the power of SL). It all made sense as we watched the Eiffel Tower, lit each and every hour on the hour at night time, start to twinkle like an enormous Christmas tree within the darkness.
Amongst billowing clouds of smoke, Vaccarello’s new take on his SL vixen began to stalk down the concrete runway. For day – neatly, as a lot ‘day’ as she does, name it pre-cocktail hour – she’s long gone a tiny bit Moroccan, and a tiny bit bohemian.
Frothy little tops and attire got here in white lace and crochet, some trailing shredded hems. There had been sheer chiffon bras and a few billowing kaftans.
And in fact – lashings and lashings of Vaccarello’s favorite black leather-based, principally within the type of high-waisted belted shorts.
The Grace Jones-worthy power shoulder, an rising Saint Laurent signature, used to be there in spades – tux jackets, plunging brocade micro attire, and a standout cropped jacket with massive zebra print lapels.
And there’s a brand new boot on the town. Last season’s sellout slouchy, sparkly thigh boot has been changed with an much more OTT take, coated in feathers – fluttering within the night time time breeze, the ladies resembled slinky French yetis. Yes, this is now a factor.
Eveningwear is Vaccarello’s giant love, and this season he pumped up the pouf form into excessive proportions.
There had been massive unmarried sleeves, off the shoulder satin tops and quick puffball attire in feathers, leather-based and sequins.
Kaia Gerber in a strapless sparkly puffball worn with sheers, stilettos and shoulder-sweeping earrings – now that’s party-season dressing, SL genre.
