Why does everything have to be such a production with him. I just want to see the clothes, dammit.

it's not that it looks bad.....it's just that this is supposed to be high fashion,one which happens to be YSL,and it all does indeed look like very bland high street knock-offs.

Why does everything have to be so pretentious with him? Not that it's even worth it, I would expect to see these at Zara, although they tend to hire better models.

Wow it's sad how he's successfully ran YSL to the ground. Before him it was a chic Parisian brand, and now they're using Skye Ferrera as a model omg LOL

Honestly, I kept looking at the models hair, it reminded me of a vidal sasoon ad from the early 90s lol. There was little focus on the model because the clothes are already available at your local high street store.

Oh, can this Sky chick go away. She scares me. The brand has been tarnished (and I liked Hedi's stuff for Dior Homme). It's like Valentino all over again.

It would be nice to see the designs in a straightforward manner since this is only Pre-Fall, but I also think it's quite charming he's made a statement with this showing. It's not much, but at least he's consistent with the way he wants to present the SL brand. I admire that about him.

As for the actual designs, high street gets thrown around a lot here, but until you've seen the actual garment up close and personal and you're able to feel the materials and examine the construction, the fit, the small details that define craftsmanship, I don't think that it's fair to call out Hedi's designs-- or any other designer's less than original collection, "high street-quality". Sure, Zara may produce a decent-looking shoe, but the leather-- if it's even leather at all, won't be the same quality as a designer pair. On the flipside, just because it's designer, doesn't always make it top quality. But with Hedi, I was never let down with his prior work for Dior Homme and YSL Men; there's always an utter surety and a crispness to his design that I always appreciate. And more importantly-- to me anyways, his designs never scream "fashion!", which I'm sure some find boring and passe, but I appreciate that about him: Who knows, the lace he uses may be Swiss? Maybe not, but until there are clearer shots of what's he's got to offer, I'm reserving judgement.
