The long hair and feminine features of the male models on the catwalk of the recent debut of the Saint Laurent Fall 2013 collection leaves the audience wondering which gender the collection is created for. The long, draping capes and the oversized sweaters match much of other French female designer’s collections, but is meant for men. This menswear presentation matches the idea of Parisian cool.
With the infusion of androgynous womenswear into this very manly line, Saint Laurent’s newest designer Hedi Slimane has taken the brand into a new direction. By infusing ripped jeans and striped scarves onto the runway, the symbolism of moving the French brand into the direction of modern society has taken the Parisian label into the next level.
