Waists High for Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2014

Sharply defined bone structure, sunken cheeks, waists somewhere around the low 20s. Hedi Slimane wasn’t going to be busting out the wide-legged trousers and glowing beefcake models anytime soon. If you’re a believer in his Saint Laurent cause then you will not be disappointed. That sullen boy in the band lost a few more pounds and gained a few more sequins. Less grunge than previous collections, this was sharply Glam-Rock in places, androgynous Teddy Boy in others, New Wave here and there, Bowie looming large – everything centred around a man, a guitar and a dangerously high n’ tight pair of trousers; buckled with intensity. It’s a lifestyle right?
