Ludovic de Saint Sernin‘s Spring/Summer 2024 collection was the subject of lust and fluidity. His show at Paris Fashion Week comes just a month after he parted ways with Ann Demeulemeester after one season. After debuting off-calendar six years ago, the brand now sees the likes of Rick Owens, Tyrone Dylan Susman, Olivier Rousteing and Carine Roitfeld sitting front row at his show.
LdSS SS24 is “a celebration of queer desire.” Different from seasons past, this collection leaned towards the subtly of lust as opposed to a display of dominance. He told press post-show, “I wanted to do a reset for this season and go back to what LdSS means. This collection, I feel, is the quintessential LdSS universe, it represents ideas of beauty, sensuality, love and freedom and the message to dare to be yourself.” The clothes continue to bring a sexy and alluring feeling, replacing zipper flies on trousers with lace-up and corsets. The runway saw one “brief” moment, where a model displayed a pair of black, lambskin briefs with the LdSS signature lace-up design.
The palette continues to stay true to LdSS, mostly in muted nudes, classic black and earth tones. Working with Swarovski, some pieces featured glimmering mesh details. LdSS is erotic, romantic and sophisticated all in one, from the apparel pieces to the jewelry. The white brass jewelry was made in collaboration with New York-based artist Villarreal Vagujhelyi. De Saint Sernin appeals to the recurring unabashedly queer design, through his lustful gender fluid vision.
