Essential: Saint Laurent Paris Fall/Winter ’13

THE PUNK FACTOR. After omitting the Yves from YSL and going full throttle with a new name and direction, Hedi Slimane is yet to reveal his daring 180-degree change of Saint Laurent Paris.

Yes, maybe the editors dub the house as the high-end version of high-street designs, but in reality Slimane single-handedly returns the house to its majestic rock ‘n’ roll throne just like the old days when Yves was still in charge.

For fall/winter, the designer compiles his Los Angeles cult inspirations and brings studs back on Saint Laurent Paris’ runway.

The seasonal accessories such as compact chain wallet, iPad case and belt—all emblazoned with studs—are the definite options for you who crave some lavish punk touch.
