Anthony Vaccarello has just made your Tuesday afternoon feel like a Friday night with the arrival of Saint Laurent's brand new campaign film for their summer 2018 collection.
Directed by the legendary fashion photographers Inez and Vinoodh, it depicts a group of Saint Laurent muses, including Anja Rubik, Adut Akech and Raquel Zimmerman, dancing on a rooftop in full regalia to New Order's Blue Monday. Shot under neon blacklight and in plumes of smoke, Vaccarello's striking pieces – from sequined tuxedo blazers to voluminous feather dresses – look like haute couture clubwear trapped in a fever dream.
While still sultry, there's a notable upgrade in atmosphere from Vaccarello's original runway show underneath the Eiffel Tower in October last year. What was once a moody, miraculous showcase presented just days after the death of YSL co-founder Pierre Bergé, has now transformed into a lurid rooftop party you're desperate to get invited to. Saint Laurent fans only, s'il vous plait.
