Details Saint Laurent at the Palladium LA

Saint Laurent’s Part 1 show at LA’s Palladium continued Hedi Slimane’s love affair with all things glam rock, only this time the menswear had a dirtier, more funeralesque vibe thanks to vampish capes, gold embroidered Napoleon jackets and 70’s gangster-pimp-style furs. Womenswear was high gloss, with the pattern and textural clashes that have become synonymous with the designer at YS: a mash-up of leopard print, gold and silver sequin explosions, red velvet and twinkly fabrics, alloyed together thanks to thick belts with oversize Victoriana-style buckles. It’s fair to say that Justin Bieber (who turned up wearing a red chinoiserie blouson and sporting platinum blonde hair) sucked up most of the attention with fellow guest Lady Gaga, who couldn’t have looked more Saint Laurent had she tried – cue the face contouring and androgynous eyebrow white-out.
