Paris: For his latest collection, Hedi Slimane continued to express his enthusiasm for L.A youth culture and this season was no exception. The bold aesthetic was fit for cutting edge rock clubs on the Sunset Strip. There were a total of fifty-five outfits each featuring coordinated separates. Standouts included the covetable, cropped leather jackets which came in a plethora of varieties cut from leather, snake, and patched suede, making Slimane’s ‘glam-rock girl’ that much more adventurous. The designer’s signature sexy mini dresses had a vintage feel and were printed with trippy florals, Hollywood Boulevard stars, dots and cherries. Tailored smoking jackets and lean trousers were the most sophisticated pieces showcasing expert craftsmanship. All in all, this was a fun collection that embodied energy and a carefree spirit – just what his customer is looking for. –Deirdre Pérez
