By now the resurgence of ‘70s fashion is well-known – and embraced – but we associate it more with bell-bottoms and fringed bags (the boho, hippie look) than with anything else. Leave it to Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane to remind us of the decade’s rock ‘n’ roll side.

And this is not just because black flatters everyone, but because of the easy, cool factor it guarantees. Though the look feels luxe, there’s no need to spend a fortune.
