Camille over the Rainbow / Saint Laurent post-Yves slash pre-grunge


It had to be done. I like to call it Post-‘Yves’ slash Pre-Grunge, in view of recent developments. Indeed, the Saint Laurent SS13 collection now reads as a playful interlude between two contradicting acts put on by the French maison. If you were at the playhouse, you would leave with a sour taste in your mouth and the sense that you had perhaps been tricked into falling for a character who turned out to be the bad guy. But let’s not talk about Hedi’sprovocativenew stance, as I’m giving myself time to process. After all, was it not this very collection of pussy bows, witchy fedoras and ultra slick boots that wasslaughtered by critics and YSL groupies alike… before everyone made a dangerous looking U-turn, and there it was, in every single editorial out there? Not to mention every single style savvy demoiselle’s wardrobe – or wish list in my case and that of the millions of other fashion-rich-cash-poor ladies.

Am I right or am I right?

So today is an ode to Saint Laurent’s new Benjamin Button woman. And although I still can’t say whether I will be regressing further into a teenage-tight mini, sloppy cardi and dirty hair, I have been dying to get my hands on a supersized fedora (collage material testifies) and make his debut vision my own. Granted I have injected a little Dior Homme into the mix, but that is only fair I think as the skinny silhouette isingrainedso deep even his name won’t forget. Ah Slim-man!

And with H&M’s New Icons collection just about to hit stores, I jumped at the chance of owning my very own piece of the cake. Sure it may not be rabbit felt, but it’s as mysteriously alluring as they come, and a bargain, too! I could get used to this.

I’m wearing: Zara boyfriend blazer – Paige denim jeans – James Perse t-shirt – Jimmy Choo suede boots – Acne bag – H&M New Icons hat and belt – Michael Kors watch

    I've got to say, as much as everyone laid it on Hedi Slimane, he did a pretty rad job at sticking to his trademark look. It's also super flattering on pretty much anyone – you definitely pull it off well! And I freaking love that hat.

    could I love that hat more? no. not even nearly. nor could I love Hedi's SS13 collection more. Man, I went in to bat for the new Saint Laurent after his debut collection in every fashion-oriented conversation I was privy to post September 2012. And then…Fall 13 happened. Frankly, I have egg on my face. Hedi I am sorry but I have lived through Seattle grunge once – if not twice – already in my lifetime and I just can't go there again. That being said… maybe I'm just showing my age. Perhaps for those who haven't already lived and breathed both the fashion and the music (I had the Pixies, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots etc etc on high rotation with my flannel and Docs for years) it seems interesting and somewhat rebellious. But how on earth we are watching this unfold for the third time since 1985 is beyond me. Anyway, there's my two cents worth. Does anyone agree/disagree? Camille I am very interested to know what you thought of the Fall 13 collection in full… lay it on us. :)

    I absolutely ADORE this look on you. I love the looks Slimane created for this season, but I don't think anyone can get away with it. That said, it does look like it's made for you!
