Anthony Vaccarello debuts his first collection as Saint Laurent’s creative director after the departure of the extremely successful Hedi Slimane. With a rather large boots to fill, Vaccarello was under immense pressure to pursue the acceptance of the crowd and the high sales figures Slimane generated.
Saint Laurent SS17 was a safe bet. Slimane’s edgy all-black and leather jacket-wearing woman remains. However, the evening wear based collection offers beautiful design for all Saint Laurent fans. The show-stoppers were the shoes and accessories that proudly displayed the YSL logo and bought a slight look into the future of Vaccarello’s reign.
