Saint Laurent Paris AW2013 Multi-Zip Leather Jacket


FW13 marked Hedi’s long heralded return to the fashion world, and while the landscape was far different than what he’d departed from, he remained unchanged. If you loved the divisive master, the season was like stepping back into a treasured memory. The first look was a sharp, peak lapel tuxedo that looked conjured from a Dior season, yet the silhouette had been updated for a new era. The boots were higher, and the pants had no break, and had, somehow, gotten tighter. The following looks intertwined a variety of Hedi’s influences. Grungy flannels and long mohair scarves and cardigans, contrasted with tight, embroidered coats, and Cruella De Ville-like minks. His dedication to his own aesthetics proved once again that Hedi doesn’t change with time, times change with Hedi. 

To earnestly use a phrase often spoilt by hyperbole, this is a holy grail of Hedi Slimane’s work at Saint Laurent. In the FW13 campaign, Cara Delevingne immortalized the women’s iteration of the same jacket. Retailing at 7,000 USD, the most notable design element is its 4 pairs of vertical zippers, two on the front, one on the back, and one on either side. each a thick, functional, “Saint Laurent Paris” embossed zipper. The red coloring is bold and shameless, while the cut is Hedi at his purest, with high arm holes and a short body. Produced in extremely limited quantities and sold mostly to VIP clients, this must have jacket for any true Hedi Slimane collector is not going to pop up on the second hand market again.
