Anthony Vaccarello captures the essence of Paris, the glamour and sensuality of the iridescent city mirrored in the Saint Laurent SS23 collection
Soft neutrals and lightweight knitwear dominate Saint Laurent SS23 but don’t be fooled: the collection is anything but demure. Padded shoulders reinvigorate power dressing for a post-pandemic world where refined silhouettes and attitude aplenty finally make their return. Saint Laurent SS23 breathes new life into archival designs, paying homage while simultaneously looking to the future. Anthony Vaccarello injects his signature touch through masculine outerwear – think wool coats, draping trenches and structured bombers – layering them over sheer, ankle-length dresses that caress the body. The most exciting comeback? The hooded ‘capuche’ pieces from mid-1980s archives that became a mark of the Maison. See our favourite looks in the gallery above.
