Beanies There, Done That - Saint Laurent AW13

Who cares if Saint Laurent's new customer is Frances Bean Cobain.
As Jess Cartner-Morley, the Guardian's Fashion Editor put it (very well I add)....

"Yves Saint Laurent himself was a rebel within the fashion industry. For Slimane to alight upon an era in which YSL has no particular relevance is, therefore, perhaps in keeping with the spirit of the house. There was a bold energy and a youthful iconoclasm to this collection. These elements are essential for keeping the Saint Laurent spirit alight."

Never mind that there were hardly any handbags or luxe elements in this AW13 collection, things you would normally associate with the YSL of old - and never mind that Hedi's fascination with LA culture and its laidback, disaffected Cali teens means rien to the chic Parisians who live for a handbag that costs more than a Citroen 2CV.
I liked the sparkly tights, babydoll dresses, leather jackets, multi-buckle biker boots and oversize plaid shirts, they made me nostalgic for my youth (which wasn't that long ago to be honest), and I also liked the "Tidal Wave 13" soundtrack by Thee Oh Sees.

So now that #PFW is over, for anyone who didn't actually see the full show, watch this video below courtesy of Savoir Flair - all that was missing was a Kurt Cobain hologram on the catwalk strumming his guitar along to Sky Ferreira singing "Come As You Are". And beanie hats. Seriously Hedi, how could you forget beanies?!
