On the island of Isola Della Certose, Venice, Saint Laurent's latest menswear collection was unveiled together with Green Lens, a large-scale installation and cultural stage created by American artist Doug Aitken.

A crystalline construction that revealed a kaleidoscopic view of the city landscape and its shifting botanical surroundings, the living artwork is a reflection of our relationship with nature against the context of innovation and the future.

Commissioned by creative director Anthony Vaccarello for the house, 'Green Lens' also doubled as the runway for his darkly opulent SS22 collection. "Saint Laurent's cult iconography always combined creative disciplines across art and fashion," the designer said. "Through those collaborations, I want to merge different fields' artistic visions in a unique artwork."

 

Drawing inspiration from past collections of the '70s and '80s, the new collection was full of slim lines and relaxed tailoring that embodied the chic styling that the house is known for. It was a tale of dark romance, a remixed dream of Victoriana, gothic glamour and cyberpunk for the digital era.
