America may not be the hottest country on everyone’s lips at the moment, mainly due to a wall, a shutdown and a Twitter happy leader, yet the Star Spangled Banner is a design icon. However, Saint Laurent is giving all its got with this exclusive America Flag Collection. There has always been an appeal for designers to present the viviv, primary blue and red shades together with the stars and stripes as it evokes a sense of youth and liberation; the Californication of culture and street style. This perhaps makes perfect sense, with the ubiquitous cross-body bag (or Fanny Pack, for my American readers) together with a low-profile sneaker, backpack, chain wallet and holdall.
I got a Saint Laurent wallet for Christmas, but I think this collection is something I will be keeping my eye on for SS19!
