Creative Director Hedi Slimane has designed a collection of Saint Laurent sneakers for the Fall/Winter 2013 season that grounds the French house’s looks in hip hop urbanity. One might say that Saint Laurent is reflecting more and more of the Los Angeles culture ever since Slimane made the city his home earlier last year, thus setting the company in the intersection of youth culture, high fashion, and art.
The Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2013 Sneaker Collection features padded ankle high tops and court classic low tops accented with graphic color blocking and silver studs. Colorways include retro hues from the 80s, such as bright red, mustard yellow, and navy blue against an off-white leather canvas. Variations in black leather and gray suede are also included, thus completing the set with street fashion’s well-known staples. Sick enough to moonwalk your tush across a dance floor in, these sneakers were intended for the high energy lifestyle, from the club to the after party.
