Okay, let's discuss the elephant in the room first: The name Saint Laurent Paris still looks weird to us. Spearheaded by new creative director Hedi Slimane, the renaming and spare redesign of the iconic "YSL" logo had its share of critics — but that's bound to happen when you mess with a bona fide fashion icon.
As for the clothes, you can't deny that its unmistakable Saint Laurent allure. We could see classic Saint Laurent muse Betty Catroux in that cutout skater dress, shimmying at a Parisian disco late into the night. The shoes, set atop needle-thin heels, are as sexy as ever, and that to-die-for red chain bag has us rethinking our obsession with Chanel's 2.55.
These are undeniably chic clothes from a house known for its vision of sexy, powerful women. We're completely into it — no matter what Cathy Horyn says.
Click on, and get ready to channel the YSL — er, sorry — Saint Laurent muse of your choice.
