Saint Laurent SS19 at New York Fashion Week

Anthony Vaccarello takes inspiration from 1970s New York for Saint Laurent's spring-summer 2019 collection.

In fact, the season brought the French fashion house close to the iconic city with a show at New Jersey's Liberty Park. Saint Laurent's rocker-chic aesthetic was once again front and center for the occasion.

Black skinny jeans and cigarette trousers accented leather detailed blazer, suede jackets, and more. Sequins and glittered embellishments added an androgynous attitude to the collection. Meanwhile, sheer tops, frail scarves, and tailored jackets brought home a Parisian spirit.

The show closed with shirtless male models that were clad in sequined pants and covered in glitter body paint. source: thefashionisto.com

Gucci t-shirt

Tour merch is no longer that one-off T-shirt you bought in a love frenzy of the band directly post-gig. Nowadays it’s a fashion-focussed affair curated to fit into your personal style. Newly versed in irony, Gucci takes on the trend for SS18, typing out its brand name in exaggerated font on this cotton-jersey T-shirt and underscoring it with a selection of locations. It’s a Gucci gig, and you’re invited. Available on gucci.com

Kappa Kontroll jersey shorts

Talk about a throwback! Kappa Kontroll is back and in a big way. We have fashion’s love affair with the 1990s to thank for that. The revival has a few tweaks mind you. The iconic mirrored man moniker is flipped upside down, and it’s placed in sequence as a side stripe down these jersey shorts. Available on selfridges.com

Givenchy classic shorts

Yes, there were a lot of short shorts on the SS18 catwalks, but if you’re sceptical about that translating to skimpy, fear not. As Givenchy - available on selfridges.com

Sandro Paris Denim Jacket

Denim jackets have pretty much made their way up through the ranks to achieve a 'basics' status that rivals the much-loved leather jacket. Sandro’s iteration leaves buttons in the past in favour of clean and sleek popper fastenings... and yes we go pink! Available on sandro-paris.com

JW Anderson Knot Tee

The knotted sleeve is a small design tweak but it’s come to symbolise the nonchalance and raw creativity of J.W. Anderson’s work. Not to mention those maritime references and they’re rife in this cotton-jersey T-shirt. Available on j-w-anderson.com

BLOOD BROTHER track pants

There’s one thing we can take solace in, and it’s the return of the tracksuit. Comfy enough to contain any wider woes, these sports-jersey BLOOD BROTHER track pants are designed with the classic drawstring waist and branded trims spanning the legs and they are our favourites. Available on selfridges.com
