Saint Laurent spring 2017 Paris



Doesn’t anyone understand how to mine an archive?? You massage what is old to modernize and up date, you don’t take an archival style rip it to shreds then think it’s new and fabulous ... in this case, new is the least of it  and fabulous doesn’t even enter into the equation ...

There are clothes that look like they were made at Mable’s House of Drag from cutting room scraps and even a drag queen wouldn’t wear some of this crap. It is a Helmut Newton shoot gone wildly astray ... then there were a few pieces that I could have sworn came out of Hedi’s old collections!

Dropped shoulder leg o mutton sleeves and flapped over leather and see thru tops with under the breast waistbands ... could it get any less tasteful... any more forced and  tricked out.. Jeez... What drug are you on ...  you need to stop talking and start designing clothes that might sell, other than one more black smoking or one more tailored jacket and no need to repeat the Victor Victoria style either or the Night Porter one breasted dress. What a disgrace to the name. Vaccarello should hide his head in shame to even attach his name to the brand

Let the paid for critics lap it up and fawn and coo... I prefer to call it what it is ...  a pile of crap masquerading as fashion ... And as for the retailers, well when will they tire of buying markdowns?

PS... Kudos to you for not making the girls look like left over drug addicts and I guess you can get credit for making Hedi look good! Oh and before I forget... how’s it looking to you Pierre?
