Fall 2011 RTW: Yves Saint Laurent

8 Mar

Stefano Pilati devoured the YSL archives in order to inject aspects of the past in the present. What was produced was an utterly sensual collection that reeked of vintage YSL, pieces created from the name himself. There were double-breasted coats and old cuts renovated for the new era — but each piece that was influenced with the old had an edge too it. The off-argyle pattern to the striking blue, shapeless dress that has absolutely no form but manages to be flattering. The ostrich feather skirt under the same-tone intense purple double-breasted jacket — stunning, and very old YSL with a modern take on the colors and cuts. The collection started out very stiffly and I thought we were in for a bore, but it was a doozy. There was black on white checked coats and skirts, one after another just trailing out until all of a sudden there was a dash of color and everything came alive once again. The end was a series of simple white pieces, playsuits and dresses alike but all floor-length and all cut differently.
