In a special video directed by Jean-Paule Goode, dancers are seen performing to Jimmy Forest’s Night Train. The makeup of the song is reminiscent of a marching band soundtrack. The dancers begin the video dancing in line before individually breaking off to show off their moves and their fits. The dancing ensemble adds a dramatic flair to the presentation that further emphasizes the 1980s inspiration for the collection.
This season, Saint Laurent leans into the primary colors. Knit sweaters comprised of checkered, horizontal and vertical stripe patterns are dressed in yellow, red, black and blue hues. The collection emphasizes the bold designs and colors of the shirts while maintaining a sleek and neutral silhouette in its pants and suit tailoring. Accessories including scarves are finished with fringe detailing that draw from the era of 1980s New York street dance and music scene. The French luxury brand is bringing back the slim-cut silhouette as seen in the zip-up leather jacket, straight cut black denim and leather track pants.
