PARIS — Paris fashion week kicked off Tuesday night with Saint Laurent’s show, boasting a front row that included Kate Moss, Catherine Deneuve and Zoë Kravitz.
Situated in an outdoor industrial space that will become the storied house’s new headquarters, the starry setting offered not one, but seemingly two runway shows from designer Anthony Vaccarello’s second run under the Saint Laurent label. Guests each received a chic black shawl to fend off the chilly rain.
Over 100 looks walked the runway: The first half was mostly comprised of body-hugging ruched leather dresses and miniskirts with exaggerated ruffles and up-to-there hemlines. Sexy — and so ’80s.
Vaccarello dialed up the high-wattage glamour even more for the second half — sending a mix of womenswear and menswear in almost entirely black looks covered in sparkles from every, and any, angle.
Sparkles were up the shoulder, framing a plunging neckline, smattered all over a loose, long-sleeve T-shirt dress.
Even a slouchy knee-high boot received the bedazzled treatment. Translation? Dressing like a disco ball is the look for fall.
