Yves Saint Laurent (ysl) Runway Show for Paris Fashion Week FW23 Ready To Wear Collection was everything beautiful and in between as its design displayed were in no doubt made of the best materials.
High quality product can be spotted from a miles apart. It’s difficult to look away from what may be the designer’s most delectable womenswear collection to date. It modernizes House codes from the past, such as the business suit with a blazer and A-line dresses, with sharp angles and an underpinning of femininity throughout, while also welcoming new additions.
Saint Laurent Winter 2023 is a masterclass in silhouette interpretation. Those aforementioned suit jackets darted left and right on the shoulder with sharp address, while pencil skirts and mini skirts elongated the body with the help of pinstripes drawing the eye up. Slim belts buckled in gold and wrapped in leather echoed the formal undertones, while leather gloves and stiletto slingback pumps allowed these looks to work in both business and nighttime settings — the epitome of Yves Saint Laurent’s boss woman.
Tank tops were sharp and tailored, appearing as yet another example of how Vaccarello takes masculine themes and transforms them for a feminine wardrobe. And to complete the aesthetic, the use of sheer fabrics and opaque fabrics, barely-there stockings, tight chiffon or loose crepe-de-chine came together to show how “the Saint Laurent woman exposes her body when she desires and conceals it if she feels like it.”
Boyfriend biker jackets were cut wide and long for you to wrap up warm in, while those looking for extra comfort and luxury have the choice of various shawls. The shawls, which came in tartan, Houndstooth, leather, and tweed, added off-duty chic finesse to cropped biker jackets, pant suits, and more, all fastening on the shoulder with a luxurious gold orb that the fabric bundled through.
