Anthony Vaccarello brought back two of the most iconic pieces of the Saint Laurent revolution: the peacoat and tuxedo, used as the base for a look inspired by the stylish Nancy Cunard!
Saint Laurent peacoat and tuxedo: a return to elegance
The silhouette, subtle in its lines and colors, paraded at the Saint Laurentshow facing the Eiffel Tower. Inspired by the theatrical and oh-so-alluring Nancy Cunard, writer, poet and fashion icon of the 1920s, Anthony Vaccarello said: “She dressed audaciously ahead of her time – giving a masculine wardrobe its own non-erasable imprint”
This approach to fashion resonates greatly with the masculine-feminine grammar of Yves Saint Laurent. who was the first to put women in a tuxedo, to make them sensual and powerful at the same time. He had in fact dedicated his work to ensuring women could reclaim the most beautiful pieces of the male wardrobe. Anything comes to mind ?
The peacoat and tuxedo, of course!
Beautifully shaped, the Saint Laurent peacoats for Fall/Winter 2022 exude the same aura as their predecessors created by Yves Saint Laurent in the 1960s. Even better, they are combined, per Vaccarello’s vision, with long dresses sometimes split diagonally or in airy and sensual fabrics.
The other great piece which inspired the current creative director of the brand is the tuxedo. Worn with nothing underneath or with a long party dress… It demonstrates that the YSL holy grail is still going strong and remains alluring and revolutionary; The Saint Laurent silhouette for next winter was gifted with the chic and audacity of Rive Gauche elegance.
