Anthony Vaccarello has unleashed Saint Laurent’s Spring/Summer 2022 Menswear collection. The show, which was set on the island of Isola Della Certosa in Venice Italy, is a celebration of nature and creativity.
Vaccarello commissioned artist, Doug Aitken for the Green Lens experimental installation that provided the show’s backdrop. The large-scale installation faceted with large mirrors and various forms of plant life is a gateway between us and the environment in a world where nature is empowered, creativity is championed, and our pst weight lifts off and encourages us to be inspiring.
“Green Lens is a living artwork. It is both an artwork, installation, and stage. It’s like a lighthouse, that one can journey to and have a very personal experience, while it also transmits light, ideas, and questions. A focal point that allows all of us to share our ideas and visions for the future post-Covid…a celebration and inquiry into the future,” Aitken said in a statement.
Vaccarello’s inspiration for Saint Laurent’s latest collection was the collaboration of fashion and art. “Saint Laurent’s cult iconography always combined creative disciplines across art and fashion. Through those collaborations, I want to merge different fields’ artistic visions in unique artwork,” Vaccarello said in a statement.
The collection prides a ’70s aesthetic that is signature for Saint Laurent. Consisting of ruffled collars, billowing shirts unbuttoned all the way down (all the way), and dainty bow ties, the looks play into a Rock ‘n’ Roll-ready gothic Victorian-era style. Elsewhere, Vaccarello looks into the fabrics that conjure an image of Venetian decor: rich velvet, jacquards, and delicate lace sticking to a palette of jewel-tones like royal purple and goldenrod. Though the city of Venice is over 1,200 years old, Vaccarello envisions the primeval city through a modern lens in his most recent collection.
