Saint Laurent punks up Paris
Saint Laurent presented a punk-rock inspired Autumn/Winter 15 line in Paris last night.
The label, helmed by Hedi Slimane, paid tribute to the ultimate bad girl with its latest line. Models strutted down the runway wearing leather, metallics and meshed pieces, while track Pretty Boy by The Felines played.
With the catwalk resembling a concert stage, boasting lights and scaffolding, the girls looked like musicians in their edgy outfits.
One walked in an all-leather ensemble made up of a black bralette worn under a matching dark jacket and trousers with rips all up the legs, complete with pointed boots.
Meanwhile a muted, multicoloured metallic strapless dress featured ruffles around the neckline and a structured skirt with netting underneath to give it volume. Like many of the other models, this girl wore fishnet tights with the dress to emphasise the theme even more.
There were brighter pieces too, such as a vivid faux-fur coat made up of different colourful strips like fuchsia, blue, red and leopard print. But to make sure things weren't too fluffy and feminine, Hedi opted to pair it with a leather skirt, ripped sheer top and fishnets, along with strappy black heels.
Another constant throughout the show was the girls' make-up, with each rocking bright red lips and heavy black eyeliner. Their brooding facial expressions gave the impression that they were not to be messed with, while their messy and unkempt hairstyles looked as though they had been in a moshpit.
For those who favour a more womanly wardrobe, a few pieces would appeal. One of these was a grey, glittery asymmetric mini dress with a small slit on the side and a big, white oversized bow on the left shoulder.
The penultimate day of the bi-annual event continues with shows from the likes of Chanel and Valentino.
