The luxury fashion label is set to host a catwalk presentation in the US city on June 6. The move comes months after the label’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello showcased a series of menswear looks as part of the brand’s womenswear show during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year.
In heading over to the West Coast, Saint Laurent is jumping on a budding fashion trend: earlier this week it was reported that the ready-to-wear label Libertine is set to swap the catwalks of New York for LA, and will host a show in the city on April 26. “We’d been feeling bored with New York Fashion Week for a few seasons and started thinking about a year ago that we’d show our fall 2019 collection in Los Angeles,” the brand’s founder Johnson Hartig told WWD of the move. “Being a native Angeleno I personally felt like it was time to represent.”
Other fashion brands to have showcased collections in LA in recent years include Rodarte, Tommy Hilfiger, Rebecca Minkoff and Jeremy Scott.
