With Saint Laurent's Spring/Summer 2020 collection, creative director Anthony Vaccarello draws on the spirit of Rive Gauche and pays tribute to the maison's cult creations. From masculine-cut tailored tuxedos to deluxe hippy looks, Vaccarello systematically revisits, revises, and reproposes YSL classics for a new generation of followers.

"It's a way of seeing Rive Gauche's clothes, a combination of the most iconic codes. Saint Laurent is about attitude as much as the show," explains Anthony Vaccarello. The show began with a succession of leather micro-shorts and cut-off jeans, paired with tailored jackets, Betty Catroux-style sunglasses, and funnel-leg Western boots. 

Then came the hippy-glam looks - a style that Yves Saint Laurent himself elevated from the street in 1976 - with turban-esque head scarves, gold-embroidered paisley dresses, delicate chiffon blouses, pleated lamé skirts, and gathered necklines. 

The show ended with an iconic finale: a sequence of tuxedo suits, led by Stella Tennant and closed by Naomi Campbell. Past and present came together to create timeless silhouettes that transcend the generations.
