Scoring practically points with versatile pieces in soft tones that seamlessly prepare you for autumn, Saint Laurent’s Pre-Fall 2020 collection is here to solve all your mid-season wardrobe dilemmas. Brimming with sumptuous silk blouses slipped under exquisitely tailored jackets, button-detailed skirts in patchwork denim or leather, and day-to-night dresses tied together by gold metal belts and over-the-knee boots, the line-up is designed to be relaxed and chic at the same time. 

Drawn to the shades and silhouettes of the ‘70s — a recurring source of inspiration for the house —  Anthony Vaccarello wanted to mirror Jane Fonda’s looks from the era, with red velvet jackets and vintage cropped denims particularly in mind. Modest cut dresses, easy-to-wear midi skirts and contrasting high-waisted short shorts come in hues of camel, beige and medallion, interspersed with rich jewel tones of ruby, sapphire and emerald.

Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2020

The Pre-Fall collection is a mix of easy and effortless styles with luxury knits in leopard jacquard, cashmere sweaters partnered with denims and an array of wear-with-anything blouses. Details come in the form of frilly collars peeping from sculptural shouldered blazers and chunky belts that add form and flair to everyday dresses. It truly is a mid-season’s dream. 

Although currently in the height of summer, the Pre-Fall 2020 collection is already on display in Saint Laurent boutiques across the Middle East, which means you’re set to usher in September wearing stunning silks under Jane Fonda-esque tailoring. Ysl.com
