Saint Laurent’s resort 22 collection was finally revealed yesterday, and it is as tantalizing as it is predictable, all tied up in a pretty little YSL package. Since his appointment at Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccarello continues to put a focus on the rock-n-roll feel that was made famous by his predecessor’s time at Saint Laurent.
This collection is ever the reminder of modern-day Saint Laurent, giving us that party-girl vibe while breathing new life into the most fundamental wardrobe essentials, like denim and tailored trousers. The collection, at its core, is so quintessentially Saint Laurent that it doesn’t feel at all surprising but somehow feels fresh and fun, with hints of feathers, mesh, and colorful prints.
As for the bags, there weren’t very many, but what was presented feels again, very Saint Laurent. There was a continued focus on the micro bag, which just feels right given the collection’s overall vibe. There were bags with straw detailing, which is to be expected for a resort collection, and there were also silhouettes with jewel-tone embellishments and studded details. Some bags felt very rocker-chic, like the kiss-lock mini bag and the studded bucket bag that was paired with sky-high platform booties. View bags from the collection below, images via Vogue Runway.
