Focus on Fashion – Beyoncé in Saint Laurent @ Coachella

Coachella is key barometer of the trends for the festival season ahead and Beyonce didn’t let us down as she stepped out in style in Saint Laurent. Think suede, fringing, fluid silhouettes and bohemian print florals.

The dress Beyonce wore is no longer available but a shorter version is still on sale.

Saint Laurent’s SS15 show paid tribute to the evocative folk-rock spirit of the 1970s. This lightweight silk-crepe dress is a feminine way into the trend, with a multicoloured floral print and tasselled self-tie neckline. Stay true to the era with a tan shoulder bag and suede boots.
The secret to this season’s 1970s revival? Artful layering. Master it with Saint Laurent’s luxurious fringed gilet. Made from butter-soft tan suede, this vintage-inspired piece is the perfect topper to gauzy peasant dresses and gladiator flats.
