Summer is here. You can feel the heat vibrating in the abandoned pool, bleached by the burning Sun. Okay, not true, but a girl can dream, right? There’s still a thrill in the air that can spur the rebellious city dweller to shatter old rules and conventions.

For the SUMMER LOOK 2018, Yves Saint Laurent is welcoming a blaze of burning sunshine with a collection inspired by the beauty of a city adventure, as today’s makeup rebel makes a bid for freedom in her very own urban escape. Subvert old codes; find your forbidden playground. Hit the arid streets and get ready to break all the rules.


Beat the heat: Zoe Kravitz, a new urban rebel

image001Can’t swim? So, skate. As expectation hangs heavy in the air, hazy with arid heat, Zoë Kravitz has no interest in the ordinary – she simply longs to be off the radar.

Escaping the city heat, she discovers an abandoned and empty suburban swimming pool to satisfy her desire for novelty. Her eyes awash with the city shades, her lips carry the heat of burnt red. Shadows play a teasing game with the light as she waits on her skateboard. Holding us in her gaze; daring us to challenge her. The rules of the city are hers to subvert.


COUTURE PALETTE COLLECTOR – Make the city your playground

Abandon the norm, push your limits – get ready to express yourself differently. Intense blue-greys capture the shades of the fragmented pavement, then meet the bold ‘vert-de-gris’ of carved stone statues to set the eyes alight.

Hot, yet refreshing. In a clever contradiction, it finds harmony with silver, glittering like the light on the city’s windows. A new eye hero; one to collect and keep for days when only liberty and escapism will do.
