A blast from the past: In the ’70s, Yves Saint Laurent famously threw a grand party for the launch of his Opium fragrance on a ship docked at New York City’s Street Seaport. For his menswear debut, creative director Anthony Vaccarello revisited the lavishness in the form of a marble-tiled runway set by the Hudson River in New Jersey’s Liberty State Park.

Vaccarello’s study of the ’70s referenced New York’s decadents of that era — from Lou Reed to the Studio 54 frequenters — resulting in ultra-glam outerwear and boot-cut trousers slightly flared at the hem.

Pin-thin rockstar silhouettes, not dissimilar to that of Hedi Slimane’s mould, were polished with added silkiness and sparkle.

The pairing of wide-brim hats and dishevelled mane made recurring appearances.

A handful of female models, the likes of Kaia Gerber and Adut Akech, walked the show in the slick androgynous silhouettes.
