Insta-Critic: ’80s Boys and Biker Babes at Saint Laurent

With the Parisian twilight as its backdrop, Hedi Slimane’s Fall/Winter show for Saint Laurent ushered in a full-force biker-chic extravaganza staged on a set of rock concert proportions. This was statement-making fashion ripped straight out of clubs, music videos, and movies of the 1980s (think: Madonna, circa “Desperately Seeking Susan”). Styled with chains, tattered fishnets, and extreme eyeliner, the references were not subtle. “Pretty In Pink” taffetta dresses and bold patchwork furs came down the runway alongside Saint Laurent’s borrowed-from-the-boys classic: Le Smoking went retro-punk for the occasion, thanks to the sly introduction of the Bowie-esque tie.
