With a colorful palette and trendy, chic patterns, Saint Laurent seems to be targeting a specifically younger audience. Interesting patterns mark this collection, like palm trees and a spider-web here:

We loved the colorful skate-board with the word ‘Baby’ on it!yves-saint-laurent-surf-sound-spring-2016-skateboards

Other than text, we are seeing a lot of small flower print on black, lots of fringes and some palm tree prints and random paint strokes in this collection. And here are some of our favorite items from this collection (also giving links to the product listing on YSL website for you):
