Saint Laurent’s statement piece inspired by a Moroccan rug

A jacket with a Moroccan influence debuted at Saint Laurent’s Spring 2017 show.

If there is a name of fashion world closely linked to Morocco it is Yves Saint Laurent. From The Majorelle gardens to Yves Saint Laurent’s house in Marrakesh, both inspired the house collections. Vibrant colors and Moroccan fabrics can be seen in the designers creations.

This time, Saint Laurent’s creative director, Anthony Vaccarello, adopted a pattern from a Moroccan carpet for this jacket displayed at the Spring 2017 show.

“I let myself get carried away by images from Yves Saint Laurent snapshots,” explains Vaccarello. “In these wool jackets––handwoven like a Moroccan rug, threadbare style, as if they’ve lived another life––there’s of course a reference to Marrakech, but also to Yves Saint Laurent’s particular way of twisting the conventions of bourgeois luxury,” he adds.

This jacket could serve as a statement piece, be dressed up or down and adds a glorious touch to the outfit.
