In a series of “seasonal” articles, let’s get back to winter (which I hope ends soon) and one of the looks I created, under a certain designer’s influence..
Find out more below…
I remember the day I watched the video of the Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane menswear Fall Winter 13 runway show for the first time. I was upset. I (thought) I hated it. I didn’t regognize the idea I had of the house’s spirit, I was confused and could’nt see myself coveting any of the pieces that had been shown.
However as time went on, when creating outfits and shopping, I started noticing that I was leaning towards skinnier pants, leather pants, leather detailed blazers, long scarves, tartan shirts, knitwear.. Yes, all the elements of that “damn” show. And that is when I rewatched the video and started to appreciate and understand the collection and inspiration better.
And I think I’m definitely not the only one who got “Slimane’d” last season- you just had to look at any magazine or store like Zara/ H&M to see the huge influence of the genius designer.
The following look was my take of winter 13-14 biggest trends, under the influence of the “Saint Laurent” vibe.
I wanted to shoot the look in a “rough” environment, and when I came across this deserted construction site on a sunday afternoon, I thought it was the perfect location.
Sweater, faux-leather pants, tartan shirt : Zara
Shoes: Hugo Boss
I hope you enjoyed this look and the inspiration behind it
