Inside Saint Laurent’s A-List New York Fashion Show
The trend in fashion shows right now, at least among deep-pocketed global fashion brands, is big. Like really big. It requires impressive guest lists and Instagram-friendly runways and a concept that deviates from the norm. In the case of Saint Laurent last night, that meant bringing the French brand’s usual Paris show across the Atlantic and plopping it down in Liberty State Park and using the New York City skyline as the show’s backdrop. Creative director Anthony Vaccarello used the opportunity to roll out a collection of luxury cool-kid staples (skinny jeans, skinny leather jeans, skinny jackets, every kind of pull-on ankle boot you can think of) in front of a sea of famous faces (Paul Bettany, Travis Scott, Kate Moss) and on a mist-filled runway that’s probably clogging your Insta feed right now. Here’s your inside look at Saint Laurent’s blowout N.Y.C. show.
