Back on the Bandanna Boat

And the bandanna is back on the fashion runways…

We are totally digging this review of Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent SS 2014 collection by’s editor at large, Tim Blanks….

“What became much clearer in this collection is just how intensely Slimane distills his teenage dreams into the perfume of his version of Saint Laurent. He wasn’t old enough for rockabilly and the Teddy Boys and glam rock in their original form. What he got was all the pop re-editions. And that’s what showed up here, as splendidly styled as the cast of an Alasdair McLellan photo shoot. So the catwalk was a feverish stew of references. In fact, to borrow a song title from the New York Dolls—whose presence was felt more than once—there was a regular personality crisis. Picture Dolls’ guitarist Johnny Thunders in his bolo tie and bandana and red patent leggings. Or David Sylvian with his flossy Japan-era swoop of hair and glam bolero. Or Suede’s Brett Anderson, in a black leather biker and pipestem pants. (Train-spotter footnote: model Matt Hitt is in a band called Drowners, the title of Suede’s first single.) There was even a veiled reference to the Thin White Duke, Slimane’s influence of influences, in the last look: black suit, red hair, slicked.”
