Hedi Slimane's Teddy Boys











Saint Laurent Menswear Spring Summer 2014

Even though I was off the last Saint Laurent Women's Ready to Wear collection, the Menswear for Spring Summer 2014 totally rocks. It makes sense to me. The look is more substantial and if you break down the collection into pieces, it's valid to have a luxury label designing them. I wish the women's wear collection made me dream a bit more but I can already pull that look off in my own wardrobe using my oldest op shop pieces and some tights from Glassons! I do like the look, it just didn't take me by surprise or leave me in awe.
BUT this menswear is another story. I would wear these teddy boy looks in a heartbeat! Check out the tailoring and fabrication of those blazers, the mix of fabrics, PVC, gold lame, weird little striped 80s style knits, leather jackets, the styling in general..... and what!? Was that a moose knuckle* I see??? It almost looks desirable!

*Moose Knuckle : the male equivalent to the camel toe...just so we're clear on that.





Some of my own slightly Teddy Boy style pieces from my wardrobe.
1. DI$COUNT safety pin tee
2. Tassel Leather biker jacket I bought in NYC
3. Vintage sheer sleeve, PVC and cotton drill jacket. 

I would have modeled them for you but I can't fit them too well right now being 31 weeks pregnant! :)
