such a good thread.....
and so totally timely considering the recent gucci and marc jacobs collections that appear to have been lifted straight out of monsieur st laurent's archives...

:p

It's images like this (from 1971) that makes me feel that Tom Ford didn't bring a lot of new stuff to YSL.

Why does anyone at all be employed as a creative director if all that needs to be done is to copy the archives...?

^^
ilj- i agree...
and i would say that's often the difference between a creative director and a designer...
for example-that's why nicola formichetti is creative director at mugler and there is someone else who is actually designing...
tom ford is really more of a stylist than a true designer---
i think the same can be said of marc jaobs most of the time...
but it's a valid skill set that i think can be very useful in keeping the image of the brand on track...

those images you posted are f*ing amazing, btw!...thx...
