so i think when you see all this in terms of just hype, "is this played out", that precise question IS what many of us hope SL won't become, just another hype beast vehicle. this should transcend the hype cycle, and if it doesn't that's when wackarello will have really undone what hedi created.

the hype cycle has its place, mostly for second-rate designers to play a game of who can sell the it piece this season to fashion buyers, right? this is the vetements story. but hedi's greatest innovation is to break it.

frankly, i respect him because he created all this DESPITE fashion insiders, the hype-creators, the people who decide what's "played out" and not, always hating him like trump hates a mexican.

so fuck the hype cycle, if that's all you see here, you don't really see the point at all. smile.gif

back to clothes for a second, picked up the new reissue destroyed og (not trash) black, great jeans. much more subtle distressing and bleaching. surprised more people aren't picking up the vintage L01, it's fantastic, i've been wearing the hell out of mine.


I agree with you. The thing I have always loved about hedi slp is that all his pieces are give or take timeless.. It breaks the BS you see in other brands, monograms etc. I just asked cause lets be frank, the biker denim was an item that got massive recognition. But anyways was just a simple shoutout thought... moving forward

+2 

 

would like to see the jacket as well. Also, which jeans are you talking about? thanks

 

also what sizing did you take on the vintage L01. I heard they run little different than the regular L01

As for the sizing, this is my rule of thumb: during the first three seasons since Hedi Slimane took the reins of Saint Laurent as creative director – SS13, FW13 and SS14, jeans were really tight and you need to take your true to size in them. Meanwhile, for all the pair released for the FW14, SS15, FW15 and SS16 collections, you need to get a size down (two if you want your denim super tight, like a “spray-on” fit) otherwise the waist will stretch a lot and you will need to wear a belt with your Saint Laurent denim after about ten wears. -lustercatcher( @slann01 )

well said neon. I'd love a snap of the jeans you're talking about, thinking about getting the distressed black ones, with the oil and the knee blowout. been on my list for ages.

Does anybody know how or where I can find L17 leather tassels.. I bought the jacket from someone, but the f'n jacket doesn't have the hassle. And they been stating that it didn't come with them. but idk if thats true? Ive heard some seasons didn't have?

 

can someone help me get some? and is that actually true?

post #12924 of 15536
This is true. Buy some random scrap leather and problem solved...

I bought these from Amazon.  It's more stiff than the actual tassels on the L17, but did the job for me and has softened over time.  The same company offers a suede lace that might drape closer to the actual L17 tassel.
