The OnoBello.com Fashion and Style Department is doing Show Reports on some select designers showcasing their latest collection this season.
According to a review by Vogue’s Sarah Mower, excepts from it reads:”If there’s one which thing ’60s, ’70s and ’80s fashion stood for in France and symbolized all over the globe it was the glamorization of sexual liberation. Thanks to Yves Saint Laurent, and to Helmut Newton’s erotic projections via his work in French Vogue, women were emboldened to claim their sexual power over men through the epitome of sophisticated dressing. The book of masculine-feminine style, tailoring, chiffon, flashed legs in black stockings was written then.
Anthony Vaccarello is in charge of carrying that flame now and you cannot fault him for being true to himself in his new role as creative director at Saint Laurent. Vaccarello does short, short, short, and tailoring. Always has. Check back to Nicole Phelps’s review of his first show as an indie designer on March 1, 2011, and there he is, saying: “It’s always black, always sexy.”
So, anyway: There was plenty of black tonight, not least in the form of the shallow black temporary infinity pool along which the leggy legion of Saint Laurent women stomped in their variously spangly, Western-influenced Le Smoking tuxedos, rich velvet band-boy jackets, corset-waisted pants, tiny dresses, and of course, shorts: shorts in black or gold leather, shorts in the fab form of sequined playsuits with exaggerated glam shoulders.”
