Jackets with wide shoulders was the key point of the Saint Laurent SS 2020 collection. Once upon a time, Yves Saint Laurent came up with these silhouettes for the model Betty Katra. The designer called her not only his muse, but also his double in a female form. The creative director of the fashion house Anthony Vaccarello rethought the idea of a classic elongated tuxedo and suggested combining it with extra-short shorts and jackboots with a wide top.
This collection became a reflection of other cult ideas of the brand - dresses made of sheer fabric and embroidered with patterns of gold threads were inspired by Russian folk costumes and the interiors of the royal palaces. There are oriental motifs in the collection, which are revealed through a combination of velveteen and velour in deep blue and black colors, unusual headbands and massive accessories.
This season, the brand has relied on mini-shorts and jackets of different cuts. Anthony Vaccarello also remembered the hippie-glamor style, which Saint-Laurent made the main trend of street style fashion in the 70’s. Chiffon blouses, pleated skirts and tops with bare shoulders hit the runway.
The final part of the show was devoted to total-black looks - mini-dresses with geometric bodices, transparent blouses with deep-Vs and classic tuxedos decorated with sequins. Breathtaking Naomi Campbell, who has been collaborating with the Saint Laurent brand for many years and often appears in public in their outfits, closed the show.
