However, Saint Laurent's Fall 2013 collection is pretty much everything I want my wardrobe to be, so I couldn't possibly let it slip by after seeing Mark Francis Vandelli's* blurred Instagram photo's of the event without putting my two cents in.
Vandelli was quick to brand the whole shebang as 'ghastly', which is unsurprising considering his uber-polished aesthetic, which was pretty much the antithesis of the SL show.
Yep, ol'Hedi went grunge...GRUNGE! The lazy fashionista/student/music lover/habitual misanthrope's dream! Floaty chiffon and floral print dresses layered with chunky cardigans and Cobain-esque oversized shirts! Pussybows, insanely sheer tights and stampy-stompy boots accented with lashings of leather! Roughed-up LBD's and polished gothic androgyny! Tartan! Beaded jackets! Chunky knit scarves! SHOES THAT ARE ACTUALLY EASY TO WALK IN!! Finally, a series of catwalk looks that I might actually be able to recreate with a trip to the chaz shop and clothes I actually own!!! I think my fashion loins just exploded from over-stimulation.
Casual androgyny, winning^

Apols for spamming Slimanes finest - it was terrifyingly tough to select my favourite 15 from the bunch. What do you think of Saint Laurents' angsty offering? Is is too awesome for words, or a tired cliche rehash? I'll leave you to make your minds up. I'm off to thrift some man-jeans and a new pair of biker boots. Tally-ho!
*Yes, I am an unashamed social media stalker of the flamboyant Made In Chelsea hero. WHAT OF IT?
