Saint Laurent AW13 - Armoured Unicorns

We're usually more California Love than California Grunge, but Saint Laurent AW13 made our tummies do little somersaults. Hedi Slimane's collection implies a quiet strength; soft and pretty but with a don't f*ck with me attitude. The original grunge girls were anti-fashion, but we think that the juxtaposition between the use of snugly fabrics (mohair, velvet and fur were all featured) and sweet dresses, with sloppy cover-ups, hard accessories and scowling faces actually serves as an exploration of what being feminine means.

Our pick of the collection undoubtedly has the be the boots pictured below, as they personify all of our favourite females - tough and sparkly, like armoured unicorns.
