Saint Laurent To Show In Los Angeles Tonight

It wasn’t much of a surprise when Hedi announced last month that he was upping sticks and heaving his menswear show from Paris to California. I mean, LA is as much Saint Laurent’s home as gay Paris these days. And really, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t sub the storm-battered grey land mass that is Europe for the positively tropical climbs of California? Now, tonight’s extravaganza is not merely a fashion show, oh no, tonight is “Saint Laurent At The Palladium”. Sounds quite Liza Minelli doesn’t it? Showing what he calls “Part 1″ of his men’s and womenswear AW16 collections, he’ll also be paying homage to Los Angeles’ music scene at the legendary venue. Expect some sort of tuneful accompaniment. “For almost a decade, Hedi Slimane has thoroughly documented, supported and championed the emerging California music scene,” say the people at Saint Laurent. “Slimane has instigated the idea of California, his home since 2008, as a territory of design exploration for luxury brands.” The latest preview for the show above, starring Bleached, a girl band so fresh that they are basically still foetae. Because what better way to spend the waning hours of a Wednesday afternoon than staring at three sassy guitar-wielding ladies rollerskate? Stay tuned to 10magazine.com for coverage of the show tomorrow…
