I gather the skinny tie has evolved into the anorexic tie?
That’s some serious Michael Jackson / Annie Hall realness.
I was going to say big time 80s!
did they in the 80s show their boobs, just like that? really?
If I recall, it was the 70s that brought us the see-thru blouse. All of this is retread.
Oh Cynica – let’s run off to Paris together and wear see-thru blouses and drink champagne and stare at hot French men. It is our destiny darling!
The lack of eyebrows is seriously weirding me out.
On everyone except the model in the black babydoll with slicked-back hair – who weirds me out by having too much eyebrow.
80′s Power Woman Power and Boooobies.
I’ll take four of everything!
UGH! Department store.
Cheap-looking and tacky as shit.
I mourn for the loss of the gorgeous Yves Saint Laurent heritage.
Le Smoking Crack Jacket.
if all the dresses were turned into pants this would be women modeling menswear. I am partial to things that are covered in lips I really like that blazer/dress.
and this season’s newest accessory will be…..*drum roll please*…..a pursed lip!
frowny face, frowny face, what do you see?
i see a hungry model looking at me.
They all look royally pissed, don’t they?
I’m sure it’s nice for someone, but it ain’t YSL. Where’s the innovation? The edge? The elegance? This is more Balmain by Forever 21.
Wow, what the heck was the stage direction to the models? Make a “sucking on a lemon” face?
Ok I know why my boobs are down to the middle of my torso, but I don’t understand why for these girls… Are the proportions on some of these tops and jackets doing that on purpose??
My mom asked the same question. I assume it is from having to not wear a bra all the time, because clearly bras are OUT.
Why do all the models have old lady boob? Is that in now? If so, I’m finally in!
A little too literal-80s as a whole, but some of the pieces I really dig!
Ohforfuckssake. Enough with the fucking eighties. They were a fashion nightmare, that only the hipsters want to repeat. I’m stabby now.
No one who dressed 80′s in the 80′s wants to relive it (except to make fun of our friends & family in pictures of course)
Or as Halloween costumes. I saved an eighties outfit for that.
Nonsense! It was better than the 70s, and there were plenty of good ideas among the shoulder pads and cowel necks.
Couldn’t agree with you more!! The 80s were definitely not a fashion nightmare, having lived through the decade myself. I am actually quite excited for the reemergence of styles like these.
It astonishes me, the people whose ’80s photos are still around in great numbers. There are localized black holes, people. Utilize them.
I loved the 80′s for the music, not the couture or coiffure.
Let us never go back to such dark days.
My first thought was that Hedi has successfully updated the ’80s for a new generation of women who were born around 1990. The thing is, if you wore it the first time around, by now you should have developed a sense of true personal style. Nobody over the age of 45 (in her right mind) is going to wear this stuff, and YSL — oh, excuse me — SL knows this. The brand has experienced huge sales increases since Hedi started designing for them, and the customer is young, very wealthy, and skinny. For the rest of us, we’ll be wearing Yves’ vintage.
“Young, very wealthy, and skinny.” Yes. That would explain my (misplaced?)rage.
My pink taffeta prom dress cringes at your comment. And my dyed to match shoes will stomp you! And my pink rhinestone matching earrings will blind you!…:D
Challenge accepted. Fashion walk off at dawn.
My collection of multi-color rhinestone dragonfly brooches will see your earrings and raise you the smaller collection of enameled stamped tin ones.
If Miley Cyrus had any taste at all, she’d buy this entire collection and wear it to death. Most of these pieces say ‘fabulous badass bitch’ so much better than pasties and fishnet frocks.
Even as irritated as I am at this collection, I completely agree, this has her name all over it.
I was thinking Heidi Klum! Not that she should, but she Would.
She has worn a few of these pieces actually like the sheer button ups in both black and nude.
Take that forever 21! thats what it feels like to have your clothes ripped off. It looks really really cheap
It’s a too literal interpretation of the 80s which makes me yawn.
Don’t like a lot of the straight up men’s wear looks her but like the variations – dislike almost every loud print here but I think St L just does classy better than edgy
My viscera reacted badly to 99% of this.
What? Do you suppose the models are sportin’ armpit hair?
I am thinking the first two may….or perhaps armpit merkins.
Some of these are styled so badly, like middle-aged mom is wearing her teenage daughter’s clothes.
And others just look like cracked-out whores.
YSL for BEBE…..right?
All the menswear elements are fab! If I see one more (or two) exposed breasts I will scream. Why is this a thing?!
8 sheer blouses that show nipples. Must be a record (a couple were covered by jackets, but the blouses were clearly nile exposing without the jacket or the jacket worn my wide open.
Paging Eric Daman and The Carrie Diaries, this is how you reference the 80s.
God. Can’t we keep on milking the ’70s for a while longer before we move fully into the ’80s and camp there?
I’m begging here, people.
The 80s have been back for quite some time. In some places they’ve already moved into the 90s.
True. But they seem more aggressively omnipresent this year than they’ve been. Perhaps i’m just noticing.
Technically I think Hedi started with 70s, stomped into the 90s, then Deloreaned back to the 80s in the last three SLParis shows…
The ’90s, unattractive as some of it was, don’t bother me much. I was mostly pregnant and/or busy with children under 7 during the decade, so I didn’t actually wear enough of it to have regrets.
The models here look extra pissed, the clothes are dated (for the most part), and the styling is horrid. What an awesome collection!
zzzzzzzz Nothing new here.
A literal tuxedo is a poor homage to Le Smoking.
This is a fucking insult to the greatest fashion designer who ever lived.
Boobies & booties.
Wow… would somebody please feed the Saint-Laurent catwalk. Hideous on too many levels.
Yves himself did the ’80s so much better. He may be rolling in his grave.
Hate the prints, hate the sheers… but I’ll take one of each of the leather and pinstripe pieces, please.
Bah. 80s club wear with power shoulders and short skirts.
I take it the inspiration was “Debbie Harry’s Closet in the 80s”?
(and that’s not a bad thing, mostly)
There’s nothing new under the sun. Especially not the nipples of teenage girls.
For the first few I was liking it and then it went sheer and boobtastic and I got bored.
what an aggressively ugly and tacky collection,
If this is 80s, it’s “Last Days of Disco” 80s, not “Heathers” 80s. The models all look like they’ve pulled a three-night coke binge, and the inspiration appears to have been “Hey remember Yves went to Studio 54 that one time?”
Who is the female model who has big, amazing ears!!! I would love to know her name, could someone PLEASE tell me her name. I am obsessed with her ears!!!! OMG!!! please…
Just when there was hope that SJP would give up the raccoon eyeliner, this happens.
So the 80′s are back?
Did they hire the Angry Peanut, aka, Jeffery Sebelia?
Aggressively ugly styling.
some of the manswear elements are wearable, the dresses are mainly tacky. I just hope sparkly socks in heels don’t become a “thing”
I really wanted to call this a tacky 80′s mess, but I just can’t. There’s something about it that I love!
Giving Versace some competition in the tacky ho department.
gosh, it all looks very,….just….thrift store, but tweeker thrift store. I kept thinking, was this designed by the high school kids that run the Hot Topic store in the mall?
wait…is heroin chic coming back? No. just FUCK no.
Stop trying to make socks with heels happen, designers.
Also, what a triumph for skinny, white girls. So underrepresented on the runway. (Yes, I had a big bowl of snark for breakfast, fellow BKs).
Started out so well, and then went downhill from there. I’m so over the sheer blouses.
I really like the gold lame dress, as well as the skinny tuxedos. The remainder – I don’t LOVE, but also don’t have a visceral hatred. I sort of miss the in-your-face big shoulder fierceness of the 80s.
How the mighty house has fallen! These are all awful in my opinion (except for the tuxedo “Le Smoking” ripoffs). Yves must be spinning.
So many thoughts, I’m just gonna spit them out one by one. The one shoulder puff pieces scream Lanvin. It may have worked for Michael Jackson but sparkly ankle socks and heels on a normal person just looks juvenile & stupid. I love the suits, especially the deep V jumpsuit and the sequined stripe skirt suit. The lips print reminds me of the Ungaro collection co-designed by LL that was panned by everyone and their mother. The floaty bright colored dresses feel like they came from a completely different collection… one you can get at Macy’s. And that houndstooth jacket is giving me life. The End.
It’s like Recent History Flashback Season on the runway! ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s stuff is everywhere. Love it, if only for the fact that curly hair was IN then. Fingers crossed!
Quirky styles, homely models, Some of the exposed breast flesh looked oddly displaced within the clothes…overall it’s fabulous
What, can someone tell me, is the point of having the models all shoving their hands in their pockets? Sure, sometimes it works. But when you’re wearing skin-tight leather pants with pockets up near the waist . . . Just sayin’.
PLease, 80s go away.
Cue Madonna. We’re doing the 80s again.
Instructions to models before they come onstage: “Look like you just smelled something bad”.
The looks are at least better if you cut off the models head and just look at the clothes. That make up is hideous! Reminds me of the metal slut friends from my youth
LOLZ. Not fresh. Not pretty. Not anything.
Kind of digging the glitter socks, I have to admit.
That third look is straight up Melissa Leo in Homicide: Life on the Street.
I really like this collection and I’m surprised at how reverential it is to wonderful ’80′s Saint Laurent. Reverential, yet updated for now. Definitely for a younger client but can easily be reworked for an older, classic client. Definitely a win!
Remember when models were supposed to be …. pretty?
The 12th picture from the top … the model …. OMG.
Trashy clothes is trashy.
Collection designed for Kristen Stewart… she’d kill it in this stuff
i love that lipstick dress! would like to see katherine moennig in many of these jackets (she played shane on the L word and is now on ray donovan) and helena bonham carter in that crazy black and white striped number.
sorry, but counting up 14 from the end, she looks like she wandered in from the set of “american horror story: asylum.”
I’m used to models being thin, but some of these women (girls?) look downright scary.
