When you think of Saint Laurents aesthetic under the direction of Hedi Slimane, studs and leopard probably come to mind before sweet little mini florals, but thats exactly what the brand has in store for some of its Resort 2016 bags. Slimane has largely avoided prints (except for the aforementioned leopard) for his leather goods, so this turn of events seemed worth a closer look.
This particular floral is called Prairie Flower, and it does indeed call to mind the tiny flowers that might have dotted textiles in the Little House on the Prairie era. The print comes in both white and black backings, but the black helps to temper the femininity of the flowers so the bags still feels like Saint Laurent.
Im not head-over-heels for the look, but its growing on me, and I appreciate seeing a bit of range from the brand. Let us know how you feel in the comments!
