Anthony Vaccarello, creative director of Yves Saint Laurent presented the spring/summer 2018 collection outside an epic runway built in Paris’ historic Place de Varsovie. He described his collection as “a dark angel with a sensual allure [who] drapes herself in black-sequinned dresses, shining like the asphalt after the rain” and paid homage, in his own way to Pierre Bergé who died earlier this month, with quotes on every seat of the event.
The show presented everything the brand stands for: chic, eroticism and liberality with floating, billowy-sleeved silk blouses, gold-coin–dot printed tulle tops, sparkling embroidered sequined dresses, and bravura ostrich feathers, all of it paired with the tiniest of shorts and skirts and an endless march of sensational boots.
It was a story told in Paris, and we loved it! Here are our best looks, you can view the full runway showcase in our Gallery.
