VACCARELLO BRINGS LATEX BACK ON THE CATWALK. AND THE WOW EFFECT IS ASSURED
It takes a lot of courage and skill to put latex on the catwalk, and the Saint Laurent fall/winter 2020-21 collection is synonymous with all this. Thanks to its creative director, Anthony Vaccarello. At the moment – the Parisian fashion week is still long – it is among the most successful shows, even if it incorporates codes belonging to the past, and not only of the historic maison. This includes the pussy-bow blouse, introduced by Yves Saint Laurent himself in the 70s. Obviously the blazers, with the unique fit of the brand. But latex belongs to the fashion of the early 80s and many people adopt it.
The défilé focuses as much on clothes as on who wears them. An ox eye usually used on stage, at the theater, emphasizes the stride of each model and makes every look iridescent. Especially those in latex, which in latin translates into liquid. And in fact, the moment it meets the light, that very seductive light-dark game emerges.
The lengths are of the dresses are mainly midi, the same goes for the outerwear, with some exceptions: Vaccarello proposes a leather bodice-corset on a long ankle coat to make you lose your mind. The other highlights are all the latex proposals: from super skinny pants to other clothes, including the black dress that closed the show. And the contemporary drama-queen effect is guaranteed. But there is not only black. The color palette is quite full-bodied – not really a certainty if it is YSL and Vaccarello. Violet, red, burgundy, blue and camel are the main nuances, able to give a little tone to a collection that would otherwise have had a completely different flavor.
The Saint Laurent fall/winter 2020-21 collection is many things, that’s why a lot has been written about it in the last hours. But looking at it comes to mind a single word, or rather a sound, not even very professional but certainly capable of expressing the meaning of the entire fashion show: wow.
