I have always been a Saint Laurent girl,” says the inimitably chic Carine Roitfeld, our global fashion director and editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book. “I love its mood and spirit of strong women.” Over the past two seasons, creative director Anthony Vaccarello has brought a new vision to the legendary French fashion house. Here, Carine discusses her favorite pieces from Vaccarello’s new pre-fall collection, and how to style them.

“It’s a very rock ‘n’ roll attitude with the fuzzy sweater and slick vinyl pants―all in black. It reminds me of Blondie.”

2. The High Drama Evening Gown

“This long dress is my favorite in the collection. The boots toughen up the look, but personally I’d wear it with stilettos.”

3. The Street-Chic Hoodie

“This is the modern way to do streetwear now. I would wear a fantastic fur coat with a sophisticated outfit, but the new generation throws it over a sweatshirt.”

4. The Patchwork Mini Skirt

“I told Anthony to make longer skirts for me because I like them to the knee! For younger girls it’s chic to show off your legs but keep it more covered up on top. It’s all about balance.”

5. The Crystal Studded Jacket

“I’ve always believed in taking one thing off before you leave the house. If you wear a jacket with dazzling crystals, you don’t need jewelry.”

6. The Bold Party Dress

“There have been a lot of eighties influences in the latest collections. A short dress with a little bit of a dramatic shoulder can be very sexy.”

7. The Tailored Jumpsuit

“What I like the most are the pieces very inspired by the DNA of Saint Laurent―like this new version of the Le Smoking, but all in one place. It’s somewhat classic, somewhat revolutionary.”

“For me, leopard will always be the most sensual print.”

9. The Novelty Shoe

“These fun stilettos on roller skates bring a smile to my face. I think they would be a challenge to walk in―even for me. Still, they’re very editorial, no?”

“My style can be very cinematic. I love black. I love ruffles. I would wear this dress with transparent tights and stilettos, of course.”
