Hanging in the balance between right and wrong, the ephemeral takes over. Anthony Vaccarello presented his Winter 21 Collection for Saint Laurent, named “Where The Silver Wind Blows”. With every new collection, Vaccarello’s exploration of the YSL archive spawn something unexpected and extraordinary.
Presented against the most jaw-dropping of backdrops, the collection shakes up Saint Laurent’s bourgeois codes, showing how strong nature is and how how ephemeral we are. The models are walking through the cliffs, crashing waves, and moody clouds, while colors clash against the black scene.
Serious matters push you to take other things less seriously, finding the balance while staying on the edge is a sophisticated aptitude.
– Anthony Vaccarello
Unshapely metal bodies come together with sixties tweed suits and fur hems, claiming their effortless nature. Glitzy imperfections taken from the classic wardrobe of nineties cult-musician Peaches, blur the line between cheesy and luxurious. Sharp metallic jersey bodysuits echo the gleaming cascades of fantasy jewelry, disguised as precious.
The irrepressible lightness of the collection mocks its serious ambitions, reversing preconceptions. The unnecessary is a featured performer, becoming necessary to revive the past.
