S/S 2016 Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane Runway Leather Zipper Dress
The twin of this dress walked the Spring 2016 runway for the Saint Laurent label by Hedi Slimane. Vogue's Sara Mower said of this collection in part: "Commercially, Hedi Slimane has no more to prove with what he’s set out to do at Saint Laurent. In a word: selling. His thorough refurb, from advertising to video, to music connections to multiple lines of product, has turned Saint Laurent into a power brand... For Spring, one glance at the lowbrow tiaras, the sparkly see-through mini-mesh dresses, the rock-chick leather jackets, and the skinny legs of the models shoved into Wellington boots told us where he was going.
This was look 28 on the runway and it was produced exactly as shown there. This one is in a great wearable size too which is a find considering the majority would have been produced in teeny tiny sizes. The cut is a classic and simple one shoulder that is taken to new heights with the use of that butter soft leather and those heavy silver zippers. It gives the impression that you can zip it off and in some ways you can - some literally do zip open to reveal a flash of skin. Its sexy, bold and pure rock and roll glam - exactly what Hedi brought to the house during his tenure there. Excellent condition
Unlined and the leather is butter soft. Closes with the zipper at the side. In unworn, off the rack condition. It is a YSL size 44 and its original retail was $4880. Note that it is a little large for my mannequin - on the right size girl it will look very fitted
