Developing upon the glitzy leather looks from its Spring/Summer 2018 lineup, Saint Laurent returns with another rockstar-chic collection. Creative director Anthony Vaccarello keeps the spirit of the brand alive with a range of tailored nightwear.

Retaining the house’s preference for slim-cut trousers and upscale leathers, Fall 2018 also sees the label adopting a new source of inspiration: early-20th-century nightwear. Women wore slinky dresses, face-obscuring hats and dresses with plunging, sculptural necklines. Smoky makeup further solidified the retro inspiration, but the looks weren’t caught up on reliving the past — Saint Laurent’s focus on slim cuts ensured that the looks remained contemporary, with plenty of dazzling sequins and accessories emphasizing the glitzy vibes.

The gritty menswear of past seasons was replaced with more clean-cut looks; shiny silk shirts, velvet suits, skinny corduroy pants and skinnier ties informed the luxurious offering. With the collection mostly centering around blacked-out clothing, Vaccarello upped the ante with pops of emerald green and silver but retained a rock ‘n roll edge with fur coats and leather layers. Reworked iterations of Saint Laurent’s iconic boots appeared on the feet of male models, but the Western-inspired jodhpurs were replaced with snakeskin derbies and boots.

Keep up with our continuing Fashion Week coverage and street style. Elsewhere, a 5-year-old Saint Laurent jacket previously owned by ex-creative director Hedi Slimane recently sold for a record high on Grailed.
