The set-up of Saint Laurent’s fashion show was so enchanting even the ones missing out on a ticket to this master spectacle (and watching from home on their phones) must have gotten chills just from looking at it. A runway built just below place de Trocadéro with the absolute best view on a sparkling Eiffel tower formed the backdrop of backdrops for the Paris born brand.

And as mesmerizing as that backdrop was as vibrant and glorious was Anthony Vaccarello’s collection. It included influences of the work of the young Yves Saint Laurent as well as the sexiness and boldness of what Saint Laurent stood for the last couple of years. Leather shorts and low cut, embroidered statement making blouses paired with boots and chunky earrings had written the words it-girl uniform all over them. Beautifully crafted white lace tops and blouses put everything on display yet still managed to look sophisticated and highly desirable paired with black leather shorts. A series of architectonic ballerina inspired party numbers formed the ultimate finale of a sexy, strong, sophisticated SS2018 collection.

A collection filled with extremely powerful looks that didn’t let the Eiffel tower steel their shine. An enchanting spectacle, an absolute impressive collection, an homage to the YSL history but more so a glorious tribute Yves life partner Pierre Bergé, who passed away earlier this month at 86.
