Rocker 70s Chic For Saint Laurent’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

The ‘70s inspired many Spring/Summer 2015 collections, and while Saint Laurent’s creative director–Hedi Slimane–has also chosen this decade as a baseline for his collection, Slimane has added rocker chic touches to give the garments a new and interesting appeal.

Studs, sequins, leopard, leathers, and furs were abundant, while colour was used sparingly, but with purpose. The overall black motif lent a moody essence to the collection, but with the added pops of red, green, pink, and teal, Slimane was able to contrast the pieces and highlight his stunning tailoring.

The collection had a vintage feel with the floral, polka dot, cherry, and starry print dresses, but the designer added modernity with turbans, metallics and chic platform heels.

Black leather jackets were presented in every s shape and size–from trench to biker–to blazer. However, several jackets dazzled with intricate beading and multicolored sequins–thus showing Slimane is capable of moving light years beyond a simple leather jacket.

The laid-back attitude of the collection led to short hemlines, tight, hot pants, deep scoop-neck tops, and navel-grazing short dresses or short-shorts. While many of the pieces had a mixed menswear inspiration, the pieces were still feminine and easy with several moments of high glamour.

The overall look of the collection may have been a throwback to the ‘70s, but with Slimane’s eye for detail, he was able to avoid any of the decade’s clichés while still showcasing fashions with a modern edge admixed with au courant wearability.
