Menswear: Saint Laurent AW14





I don't know what exactly it is about this collection (maybe the sunglasses indoors?) but it gives me this definite kind of vintage, American, "cool-guy" vibe. It seems somewhat exaggerated and absolutely cinematic.
Similarly to the Alexander McQueen show I posted about here, there's a lot of attention to detail (just look at that studded jacket!) and print, with recurring hints of tartan and leopard.
It all makes a bit more sense when you discover that New York legend Raymond Pettibon apparently worked with Hedi Slimane to give some extra artistic vision, and produced an invitation booklet for the audience. (The collection definitely reminds me of the infamous Sonic Youth 'Goo' album cover.)

Shot once again by the fantastic fashion photographer Lea Colombo who really captures the essence of these shows (see Alexander McQueen AW14 here, and Lea's Tumblr here for more and backstage shots).
