The mood

Saint Laurent’s show had the fashion pack in raptures. Bedazzled tuxedos, iridescent liquid crystals, micro-shorts (a consistant trend in all four fashion capitals), the inimitable Naomi Campbell closing the show: confident sex appeal reigned supreme. Beneath the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower, the opening looks included a seductive display of mostly head-to-toe black, packed with late 70s rock ’n’ roll adrenaline, with a serving of Le Smoking YSL heritage. Closing the show, Miss Campbell wore a sequin-drenched trouser suit for an elevated update on tailoring. As well as party season essentials, elsewear in the mix was also a nod to more boho, gypset sensibilities in the form of flirty dresses and exotic head scarves. While Anthony Vaccarello’s signature dark edge was a running theme, that isn’t to say it was all evening wear - see cut-off denim jeans, white shirt and blazer combination for an easy way to do everyday French glamour. Finishing touches for louche nonchalance? Betty Catroux-inspired oversized sunglasses and slouchy gold and black boots.
