Saint Laurent S/S 2013
The much anticipated S/S 2013 Saint Laurent show was Hedi Slimane’s debut as womenswear designer, and he really transported the brand back to its roots.

Balmain S/S 2013
Mixing Cuba and ’90s. An interesting combination Olivier Rousteing followed for Balmain’s S/S collection, and spectacular nonetheless. Meticulous embellishment was once again in the spotlight -a permanent quality of the house- glams up the oh-so-beloved dynamic mini-dresses that were designed to resemble the Cuban bamboo chairs. Goal achieved. Besides that, talented Mr. Rousteing must ‘ve […]
