Discover SAINT LAURENT Spring Summer 2023 Menswear Collection, that explores Yves‘ fascination with Marrakech, presented on July 15th, at the Agafay desert, Morocco. The collection dissolves the line between masculine and feminine wardrobe. The focus of the collection is the tuxedo, reimagined with modern and exciting new choices. The silhouettes are relaxed, a predominant high waist and wide leg create an elongated shape occasionally interrupted with narrow or boxy accents. Scenography was inspired by Paul Bowles’ 1949 novel The Sheltering Sky, and it pays tribute to Morocco’s majestic beauty. The set design that represents both hope and mystery, was created by Anthony Vaccarello in collaboration with London-based artist and stage designer Es Devlin.
“Outer pieces are looser, fluid, less constructed: gathered satin coats envelop the body almost to the ground while tailored jackets have a graphic sharpness. Grain de poudre, a finely tactile wool fabric with a long association at the house – Yves Saint Laurent loved using it – makes a strong showing, recurring in multiple looks.” – from Saint Laurent
