Anthony Vaccarello presents the Saint Laurent men’s SS23 collection in Marrakech, Morocco. Yves Saint Laurent first came across Marrakech in 1966. The city quickly became the designer’s refuge, where he enjoyed the calmer, more leisurely rhythm of life compared to his busy Parisian work schedule.
“The eminent personal significance of Marrakech for the house founder is the evocative backdrop for Anthony Vaccarello’s thoroughly forward-looking Men’s Spring Summer 2023 collection for Saint Laurent. If there ever was a line between what constitutes a ‘masculine’ wardrobe and what makes clothes ‘feminine,’ it elegantly dissolves here.”
“The show’s setting honors the majestic beauty of Morocco : inspired by Paul Bowles’ 1949 novel The Sheltering Sky, Vaccarello, in collaboration with the London-based artist and stage designer Es Devlin, conceived an awe-inspiring set in the middle of Agafay desert – a ring-shaped luminous oasis amid the vast, arid unknown. Hope and mystery juxtaposed as a metaphor for life’s fascinating complexity.”
