The newly redesigned Saint Laurent, helmed by Anthony Vaccarello, showed off the Spring 2018 collection under the Parisian night sky with the new model brat pack: Kaia Gerber, Binx Walton, and Vittoria Ceretti among industry icons like Jamie Bochert all strutted the catwalk with the glittering Eiffel Tower above. Vaccarello sent out an old world glamorous collection consisting mostly of black and white, mixing textures of silk, leather, and ostrich feathers.

"I want to tell the story of Saint Laurent, of Paris—nothing more deeply than that," said Vaccarello. "That girl of Saint Laurent—she wants to have fun. She's not depressed. She wants to enjoy life!" A celebration of life, but with a bittersweet tinge; each of the seats at the show had a quote from the recently-passed Pierre Bergé. To further pay homage to Saint Laurent's roots, the collection was filled with references to the house's storied past, with touches of Marrakesh, plunging necklines, and billowing silhouettes.
