HEDI SLIMANE GOES FOR NIRVANA LOVE AT SAINT LAURENT!!!


I WAS A WIDE EYED TEEN DURING THE GRUNGE ERA, AND I HAVE TO SAY THE FASHION WE WORE BRINGS BACK HAPPY MEMORIES, WHICH I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT DURING THE FURORE OF HEDI SLIMANE'S FALL 2013 COLLECTION FOR SAINT LAURENT AT PARIS FASHION WEEK. REACTIONS WERE A LITTLE PASSIONATE TO SAY THE LEAST. FROM TWITTER TO FASHION BLOGGERS, EVERYONE HAD AN OPINION. I HAD TO WATCH THE SHOW A FEW TIMES TO FORM AN HONEST OPINION.

MODELS TOOK TO THE RUNWAY WITH AN UKEMPT LOOK , WITH OVERSIZED CARDIGANS AND TARTAN SHIRTS WORN OVER MINI DRESSES, BABY DOLL DRESSES AND PETER PAN COLLAR DRESSES. FISHNET TIGHTS AND BLACK BIKER BOOTS TAKES ME BACK TO COLLEGE DAYS AND GRUNGE SHOWS AT UNI BARS.

LEATHER BIKER JACKETS AND LEOPARD COATS FILL ME WITH GLEE. THE LEATHER PANTS AND TARTAN SHIRT WITH BLACK BLAZER IS A TOTAL KILLER LOOK THAT I ADORE. THE FUR COAT OVER A FLORAL BOW COLLAR SHIRT AND TINY SHORTS IS GRUNGY AND SEXY. CARA DELEVINGNE BRINGS TOTAL COOL WEARING THE GREY DUFFLE WHICH MADE MY HEART SKIP A BEAT.

I SHOWED THIS COLLECTION TO MY FIANCE AND HE LOVED IT. MAYBE BIASED DUE TO HIS CLOSET FULL OF TARTAN SHIRTS. ANOTHER FRIEND SAID SHE WOULD WEAR EVERY PIECE. 

THIS DEPARTURE OF THE CLASSIC SAINT LAURENT IS QUITE OBVIOUS AND MAYBE RISKY FOR SLIMANE, BUT SOMETIMES TAKING A DIFFERENT DIRECTION MIGHT BE WHAT SAINT LAURENT NEEDS.

I HAVE IMAGES OF TOO COOL CELEBS WEARING THIS COLLECTION AT COACHELLA. 

SO YES I THINK I LIKE (NO LOVE) THIS COLLECTION.
