I love Allison, but I'd find it just as insipid.

The more I look at it, the more high street I see -- that combination of classic preppy [toggle and peat coats] combined with the rocker elements -- c'mon man.

Stefano should never left YSL he was very good, and made some great collections and stunning accessories, now Hedi....if this is true to YSL I don't know what YSL is anymore!

It's a shame that a brand soo sensual, vibrant, parisian, and with an exotic spice to it...turns out like this, bland and lifeless, it lost their charm!
That's exactly what I was going to post!

It's not even Topshop. Even Topshop and H&M are edgier than this.

Other than that -- I really don't like this look. And I usually love most things YSL

I have come to grips with the Hedi's plan to change the brand but I can't get into his design aesthetic. I don't care how cool the clothes looks or how sexy the lengths of his dresses are, I still think this looks incredibly cheap.

You cannot tell me this doesn't look like a designer TARGET collection.
