5 Things You Need to Know About the Saint Laurent Show at PFW

Take a look at the celebrity-filled front row, the best looks, beauty and stand-out accessories.

Paris Fashion Week is in full swing, and one of the biggest shows every season is of course Saint Laurent. With Anthony Vaccarello at the helm of the label, YSL showcased its Spring/Summer 2020 collection last night in front of a gorgeous Parisian backdrop which quickly was posted all over social media, giving us the ultimate FOMO.

The show has now wrapped up, and we’ve put together everything you missed from the anticipated show ranging from the inspiration behind the collection, to celebrities in attendance as well as key accessories. Keep reading below for everything you need to know about Saint Laurent’s SS20 show.

Location


If there’s one thing that Saint Laurent never fails to do, it is put on a show. This year the Parisian label erected a runway complete with light beams opposite the Eiffel Tower at night, turning the show into one of the biggest events during the week. Show-goers had a beautiful view of the iconic landmark as it lit up alongside the beams of the runway, as models paraded down the space in between the spotlights.

This season Anthony Vaccarello took inspiration from what Yves Saint Laurent created throughout the 20th century and channeled it into a modern and contemporary design. Taking on the classic Le Smoking suits, Vaccarello brought back tailoring, shape and cut-offs in the SS20 collection.

Applying his signature rock-inspired aesthetic, the range saw an experiment of materials which ranged from pleated lamé skirts to chiffon blouses, as well as chic necklines, sexy silhouettes and Western-like boots. Tailored jackets and short shorts dominated the range, as well as gorgeous materials and opulent embroidery, emphasizing Saint Laurent’s luxury yet wearable aesthetic. Of course, we also saw party-ready dresses and sequin-clad pieces in true Vaccarello fashion.

All in all, the Spring/Summer 2020 range was a softer take on the signature rocker-chic aesthetic that Anthony Vaccarello has applied to Saint Laurent, with softer silhouettes and materials taking the spotlight. Consisting of a total of 87 looks, the collection was closed off by none other than Naomi Campbell, who wore a sequin two-piece suit that glittered in the spotlights.

Beauty

The only way to define the beauty from the show is “no makeup-makeup.” Models wore barely any makeup, sporting their natural beauty in looks created by YSL Beauty Global Director Tom Pecheux as well as hair by hairstylist Duffy.

Accessories

Sunglasses proved to be a big part of the collection, moving away from this year’s tiny shades trend and going back to big and bold frames. As for footwear, we saw a new take on the ever-growing Western Americana trend, with knee-high cowboy boots in hues like gold, brown and black dominating the collection. We also saw luxury heels sporting the house’s iconic YSL logo, as well as party-ready pumps throughout.

Going back to the 2000s’ aesthetic, big belts were also a big focus this season, marking the waist and adding a feminine silhouette to masculine pieces like suits and blazers. Lastly, new bags were also debuted in a wide range of hues and designs, all complete with the signature YSL moniker.

Attendance


Saint Laurent is undoubtedly one of the biggest shows to look forward to during Paris Fashion Week, and this time around we saw a star-studded attendance ranging from brand ambassador Zoe Kravitz to BLACKPINK‘s Rose sat front row. Ezra Miller, Rami Malek, Kate Moss and Euphoria actor Jacob Elordi were among the names that attended the anticipated show, and models like Kaia Gerber, Naomi Campbell and Adut Akech walked the runway.
