Yves Saint Laurent has been undergoing some major changes this year, as you may have heard. Hedi Slimane took over as the creative director. They changed the name to Saint Laurent Paris (after, oh, sixty years?), except that’s not for accessories, which will remain Yves Saint Laurent. Oh, and the logo will remain YSL, obvs. And then the women’s collection would be Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane. Confused yet? Just wait; it gets weirder. I’m a little scared to talk about Hedi Slimane, because if I ever truly make it in the fashion world, he’ll find this article and never give me a seat at a YSL/SLP/SLbHS show ever. Watch the drama unfold here–it’s really worth the fifteen minutes of your life you’ll never get back just to remind yourself that artists are touchy as hell. That being said, I for one thought the collection was absolutely lovely, but it was right up my alley. Classic, a bit dramatic, sexy in places, and based on, well, black. Check it out, but make sure you get the backstory, too. It makes you hate to love the collection, and love to hate the open letter trend of late.
Not every shot you see in the Sartorialist lends itself to everyday style, but this one hits the nail right on the head. The super skinny jeans and the awfully vintage-looking kicks pair so well with the more grown-up blazer and Breton stripes.. but the real stars here are the accessories. The luxe fur scarf, the petite driving gloves, the casual, yet delightfully bright bag! This is a look that can work well for anyone and is just oh-so-Paris. I’m in love.
Ah, yes, another Sartorialist read, but this isn’t street style! Miu Miu on the runway this season was all drama. In my opinion, I felt like I was watching a modern version of a Streetcar Named Desire, or something, and these photos capture it perfectly. The singular, white light; the downturned eye, the grasping of the scarves.. Second thing: if Miu Miu is designing flat pumps with skinny heels, I think we can safely say that platforms and chunky heels are gone… for now. Rejoice!
I am just simply blown away by these light installations by Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen. The eclectic collection of lamps lends a nearly human quality about these sculptures, making them appear, to me, as little mechanical fairies in a dream world. The landscapes that pose as the canvas are breathtaking on their own–the dark, quiet blue of a sleeping forest, the soft, hazy rush of a waterfall.
We’ve all had dried blood under our fingernails at some point or other… right? That’s not just me…. right, you guys? All possible criminal implications aside, these nails are perfectly festive for the Halloween season, and easy, at that! I can just so see Emily Schuman rocking these, for some reason. Totally cute.0
