Saint Laurent Paris AW2015 Leopard Fur Coat

Backstage, Hedi Slimane declared his FW15 show an homage to a set of young Parisian rockers he’d spent the past months photographing. The season was Hedi Slimane as his purest, impossibly thin boys and girls stalked the runway in outfits largely interchangeable, with most looks featuring 8.5 cm heels, giving the already svelte models a fun-house mirror of a silhouette.  The season had an unquantifiable sense of cool — it felt as if we were watching not a procession of looks but a glimpse into some gathering we didn’t deserve to be privy to. Adorned in fur and leather silks, the models looked on their way to some new club you couldn’t get into. It’s an ephemeral sensation Hedi captures again and again in his best work, and feels notably absent from his swings and misses. 

A true grail of the season, this leopard-print fur coat sold out during pre-order at most SLP boutiques, retailing at over $3,000 USD. Sheer rock n roll debauchery, it was seen on a litany of celebrities, and feels stolen from the wardrobe of Brian Jones or some other member of the Rolling Stones. High arm holes and flowing cut imbue a sense of sophistication into this loud statement piece.
