Hedi the Rebel

Much of the controversy of Slimane’s taking the reigns over at Saint Laurent (RIP Yves) and so it’s now easier to actually appreciate what clothes they have been creating over the past year. Firstly, Slimane is a bit of a rockstar or perhaps his collections for the rocker woman is so convincing I’ve accepted it as his persona.

Then there’s the campaign starring Courtney Love, the epitome of female rocker, and the ever-controversial Marilyn Manson for A/W 2013. And let’s not forget the rebel of the model world Cara Delevingne.

Basically the rebel is here to stay, but with a concurrent nod to the classic YSL throughout shown this specifically season with tuxedo jackets, one shouldered dresses and a jazzy lip print. The Spring 2014 Paris show combining this with an 80s referencing.

And let’s not forget those kitten heels.

What do you think – will Slimane’s rocker aesthetic keep us interested? Or have you already purchased one of these…?
