The Yves Saint Laurent 2023 Fall/Winter womenswear collection was nothing short of elegant, which was exactly what Anthony Vaccarello, the French fashion house’s creative director aimed for.
The event was held in a modern ballroom-inspired venue with five golden chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, illuminating the gold runway tapestry creating an ambience of opulence and classic sophistication.
Vaccarello skillfully, confidently, and splendidly explored his concept of elegance in each piece from this 2023 Yves Laurent Fall collection.
The collection featured beautifully tailored oversized suit jackets worn with fitted skirts and accessorized with black-colored sun shades and jewelries.
The jackets and fitted skirts were occasionally exchanged for jumpsuits and satin blouses with long neckties draped over the shoulders or scarfs wrapped and neatly pinned at the front of the neck, respectively.

The 2023 Yves Laurent Fall collection is an astonishment as Vaccarello created the women’s clothing with inspiration from the men’s fashion world.
The major highlights of the Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2023 collection include:
Saint Laurent Oversized Suit Jacket

Oversized outfits are sometimes seen as a blast from the past style of clothing, but this is not the case with Yves Saint Laurent oversized suit jackets, as the angular suit jackets hung perfectly to the models’ shoulders giving them a more conventional look. The jackets of display were of quality tailored cuts (as expected) and featured high padded protruding shoulders and enormous long sleeves.
These jackets also come in different colors.

Apart from Yves Saint Laurent suit jackets donned by the models, the French fashion house’s creative director, Anthony Vaccarello also brought out his creativity in these thick-skinned leather jackets. The jackets came in brown and black colors and were complemented with scarves pinned to the neckline.
Saint Laurent Fitted Skirts

Some of the models complemented their jackets with slim fitted skirts. The skirt featured a slit at the front and was gorgeously worn with a matching belt.
Some of the skirts are made of leather fabrics.

The collection also included wrap tee halter-neck chiffon tops with ruffled fronts paired on top slitted fitted skirts.
The Yves Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2023 fashion show was the epitome of elegance as the models strutted down the vintage elevated runway, which was the ideal setting for the collection.
The Yves Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2023 collection according to Anthony was inspired by memories from the past and a desire to design a standout ensemble for women’s fashion.
And while some described the collection as a blast from the past, for us it was an embrace of the past, an acceptance of the presence, and glimpse into the future all rolled in one.
