seenlondon

Watch this ‘behind the scenes’ video of Yves Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 17 collection captured by Nathalie Canguilhem in the hours leading up to Anthony Vaccarello’s catwalk debut, last September. His dramatic reinvention of The House of Yves Saint Laurent continues, steadily but surely, introducing his glamorous and sexy aesthetic into the historic French maison.

The video opens with the giant, glowing YSL logo Anthony suspended over the entrance to the show, with Mica Arganaraz, Freja Beha Erichsen, Yasmin Wijnaldum, Binx, Selena Forrest, Lexi Boling, and Vittoria Ceretti wearing the new collection’s looks in a black and white mood.

Enjoy the video now, alongside a glimpse into the new YSL campaign shot by American artist and fashion photographer Collier Schorr.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
