Saint Laurent Style

The Saint Laurent style (also known as the Hedi Slimane obsession with rock n roll chicks who sport a 1970s fuck you chic) is hip (everybody loves it), cool and therefore impossibly desireable (all the guys and girls depicted in Saint Laurent ads are cool, chic, skinny...yeah, what you gonna do..)

You can wear almost everything straight off the runway provided you have the above listed traits and lots of pocket money. The dress shown costs 8000 Euros, the cape 4000,  the boots 1400. As far as I'm concerned, those fantastic boots (available in black patent leather, beige suede, glitter silver and silver leather) are the sole item worth spending money on. They're classic and will last beyond a trend.

Capes have returned as the other trend pieces of the season and are not everyone's cup of tea. Certainly not mine. I've seen a cute young things wearing them with skinny jeans and leggings. Loved the look. If super heroes and little red riding hood tickle your fancy, by all means get yourself a cape. Not worth spending a ton of money on though as luckily, cheap alternatives abound. What defines the Saint Laurent look: baby doll minis, low heels, black tights, the odd bow tie here and there. Off to grandmothers house we go.
