Classic Saint LaurentAaliyahsHalo
Magenta, lilac, mauve and juniper: the men’s collections were painted every hue of purple. Saint Laurent‘s all-black collection was interrupted by a single magenta belted jacket, Louis Vuitton proposed the wear of boxy deep mauve monogrammed two-pieces, while Georgio Armani wants you to play around with hues (juniper and Iris), as well as textures (silk, satin and velvet). Elsewhere Kenzo’s all about contrasting stripes in jam and violet, while Canali wants you to wear suiting in blush lavender.
“ Saint Laurent’s Marrakech is akin to how he sees Los Angeles as a quiet retreat from the world – “Yves never really left the house,” explained Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello ahead of their Spring/Summer 2023 Menswear show ”
It was in 1966 that Yves Saint Laurent first visited Marrakech, a place that would go on to become sacred to him for its sense of calm. Here he designed his forthcoming collections, visiting in June and December to find solitude away from swinging Paris. In Morocco he found colour, and his ensuing collections were dominated by vivid hues that had never been seen in his work before.
