There’s something engaging in backstage shots. They’re an antidote to the game-faced identikit strut of the runway. In these exclusive Polaroids from AW18, Kaia, Kiki and co. channel the pouty Dynasty-era party girl aesthetic Saint Laurent has long pioneered, with a dose of Patti Smith androgyny for good measure. Who needs exuberant make up and lurid technicolour when you’ve got sultry fabrics, serious accessories, and an attitude like you’ve raided your mother’s wardrobe to match.
