Abbey Lee for Saint Laurent–Abbey Lee Kershaw has been pretty quiet on the modeling front since her last appearance for the Gucci fall 2013 advertisements, but the Australian beauty is back for spring 2014 with these new eyewear ads for Saint Laurent.

Saint Laurent Fall 2014–Following a season of grunge and then one with eighties rocker influence, Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane looked to the sixties mod movement for the brand’s fall-winter 2014 collection presented during Paris Fashion Week this Monday. Of the era’s signatures, there are A-line skirts, mini shift dresses as well as a modern take on the swing coat in moody plaids. Outerwear is cut slim for the most part while the Saint Laurent girl wears either a Mary Jane or knee-high boot on her feet. As with the spring, shimmer is an important feature of the lineup whether with metallic silver boots or shiny paillette embroidered dresses.
Saint Laurent’s New Blood – For Saint Laurent’s spring-summer 2014 campaign, creative director Hedi Slimane tapped a cast of new faces.

The images are in black and white and also accompany a video set to the tunes of “Teenage Girls” by Cherry Glazerr.

Saint Laurent: Rock Spring – If last season was Hedi Slimane’s grunge collection, the spring 2014 season for Saint Laurent can be dubbed the French fashion house’s eighties moment. The designer referenced power dressing style with boxy cut jackets, menswear inspired suits paired with skinny ties and form-fitting leather skirts. The Le Smoking Jacket which the Saint Laurent name is famous for was incorporated in a rock and roll style, worn with skinny pants and sheer shirts. Dresses featured Paris Fashion Week’s metallic trend; finished with one shoulder in a dramatic and voluminous fashion. With his third runway show, Slimane’s vision for Saint Laurent is proving to be all about the cool factor and youthful style.
