Saint Laurent Fall-Winter 2018-19 collection presented in Paris during fashion week is one of the collections which became tradition of the house. Shorties, skinny leather pants and jackets, designed by Anthony Vaccarello – Saint Laurent creative director since 2016, are iconic looks of the house today. In this very recognizable style you can see fur and velvet in a rock ‘n’ roll style. There was also a series of very 1980s-inspired dresses, with asymmetric cuts and standout shoulders. Big hats, as well as headscarves and turbans so dear to the label’s founder, Yves Saint Laurent, also featured on the runway show.
Yves Saint Laurent, also known as Saint Laurent, is a French luxury fashion house founded by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé. The company revived its haute couture collection in 2015 under former creative director Hedi Slimane. In April 2016, Anthony Vaccarello was appointed as the creative director.
Founded in 1961, it has been considered one of the world’s most prominent fashion houses and is known for its modern and iconic pieces, such as its tuxedo jackets for women. Today, Saint Laurent markets a broad range of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear products, leather goods, shoes, and jewelry. Yves Saint Laurent Beauté also has a notable presence in the luxury beauty and fragrance market, although this is owned by L’Oréal who hold exclusive licenses for the name.
