New EP coming Winter 2017
itting in his light, clean apartment turned atelier, Saint Sernin appears serene and relaxed. “It’s gendered as men’s, but I think what I do becomes menswear on men, and then if women want to wear it, it becomes womenswear. Once it’s on the person, gender doesn’t really matter as long as it fits their body. I’ve shopped for and worn womenswear for a long time, but I don’t think I look like a woman when I wear it.” Some of his favorite pieces are pants by Christophe Lemaire or Issey Miyake. He loves Loewe. And Céline—even if he can’t afford it. A recent visit to The Row in New York was a major inspiration. “I just want to be elegant and do something that’s my own,” he offers.
