Saint Laurent and Paris are almost inextricable—almost. Because tonight, after helming the brand for nearly two years, designer Anthony Vaccarello is pulling up stakes and showing the spring 2019 menswear collection in none other than New York City. Of course, this being an iconic French brand, it makes sense that he chose the most French piece of American iconography as a backdrop: the Statue of Liberty. (You did know that the Statue of Liberty is from France, right?)
Starting at 9pm EST, Vaccarello will send his signature tough-but-sophisticated looks down the runway at Liberty State Park. What can we expect? Leather, velvet, embroidery, denim, a whole lot of opulence, and no small measure of cool-as-fuck vibes. Or, to put it another way, exactly what we’ve come to love from Vaccarello’s version of the house since he took the reigns from Hedi Slimane in 2016.
There will also be celebrities, fashion insiders, and all those front-row types. This is a major production, after all! And even if you don’t happen to have a seat right next to the A-listers, we’ve got you covered. Watch the show live right here, and get ready for a little spring style inspiration. Enjoy.
