Saint Laurent " symbol of revolutionary femininity "
Saint Laurent is a French luxury fashion house specializing in the production of clothing and accessories. The women’s collection is a spokesperson for an extremely sensual femininity that focuses on masculinity: maxi coats, transparent dresses, lattex pants, structured blazers with male cuts. The wardrobe is complete with accessories such as pumps, leather bags and belts. The refinement that distinguishes the brand is also reflected in the men’s clothing collections: leather jackets, knitwear, tight-fitting suits, slim pants, transparent tops. As for the accessories there are belts and leather shoes like the iconic Wyatt boots.
Saint Laurent stands out for its timeless elegance and its chic - modern style that has rewritten the history of luxury prêt-à-porter. Sensual, feminine, refined, the brand is synonymous with androgynous seduction and female empowerment. The result are collections with bold and sharp silhouettes that recall the nostalgic '80s: padded shoulders, deep necklines, transparencies, all elements that, wrapped by an unmistakable French charm, are meant to emphasize and enhance the female body, without ever getting in his way.
Founded in 1961 by the designer of the same name, Saint Laurent was the first maison to introduce the concept of luxury prêt-à-porter debuting in 1966 with the collection "Saint Laurent Rive Gauche": a moment that forever revolutionized the relationship between society and fashion system. Visionary, refined, creative and avant-garde, Yves Saint Laurent definitively breaks the social conventions of his time, especially those related to the female wardrobe: through his works, or better masterpieces, wants not only to emphasize but to give power to the female body. In 1999 the brand was bought by the Kering group, a company operating in Paris in the luxury sector. Recognized as an icon of contemporary fashion, the maison through its scratchy and sensual aesthetic reflects the legacy of Monsieur Yves. Anthony Vaccarello, creative director of Saint Laurent since 2016, has constantly kept alive the rebellious identity and absolute modernity that has always distinguished the brand.
