Prom gets punked and the tuxedo gets twisted. Take a look at Hedi Slimane’s unapologetically fierce AW15 Saint Laurent collection.
Prom Goes Punk
You can always count on Hedi Slimane to put his rock ‘n’ roll stamp on thing. Saint Laurent AW15 is by no means an exception when prom-wear gets laced with punk. Think a cinched in waists and layers of rose pink tule (short on front, long at back) teamed with manly oversized suiting, sheer black tights and vampish heeled boots. If pretty in pink isn’t your style, Julia Cumming’s look is sure to seduce you. More attitude, less princess – she stomped down the runway, to the punk-driven sound of The Felines, wearing a black tutu-type skirt, flesh-baring lace top and a leather biker jacket, with ripped tights and re-stained lips.
Reinventing a tried and tested Saint Laurent classic for AW15, Slimane serves the tuxedo jacket cropped over a fitted white shirt, worn with cigarette pants, complete with pockets – skinny black tie and braces come as an optional. However, the overly-underscored eyes are a must.
The Saint Laurent AW15 OMG moment came in the shape of a electric blue, Pikachu yellow, pillar-box red and shocking pink patchwork fur coat that’s sure to be a favourite the minute next winter comes rolling in. Worn over a revealing zip-thigh leather skirt and a laddered black top, it’s capable of elevating an outfit from mundane to magnificent in a mater of seconds.
