Hedi Does Saint Laurent Drag

First off ignore the hats. Everyone found them distracting....

But the 'monumnetal' premiere collection Hedi Slimane designed for Saint Laurent seems, well, more like a thesis on well worn YSL motifs

All the tried and true tropes (Verushcka safari jackets: Check; Betty Catroux: Check; Le Smoking: Check) were there minus some ornate Ballet Russe details and models of color (Seriously: 
M. Saint Laurent loved a model of color and with this topic still hotly debated this was a huge miss for Slimane) 

I'm not saying the collection isn't salable and that Slimane's signature aspiration slim fit wasn't present, I'm just sayin' it ain't re-inventing the wheel. 

And that was a lot of hype for an homage.
