i love this! it was his first womens collection afterall, not just his ysl debut. the media did hype this up to be the second coming of christ, and i think no matter what went down the runway he'd never live up to expectations. but this was a really good collection! the suiting was to die for, as expected. and the detail shots on style.com show some gorgeous work. i could have done without the fringed suede however..

very excited to see his mens offerings.

This is very personal to me I love the whole rebranding thing, it is like a breath of fresh air. They have such a strong direction of achievements they would like to earn. The whole design from Heidi is spectacular, I just want to see more and more what he could offer to the house.

Quite underwhelmed and agree with the general consensus.

After YSL, Tom Ford didnt give a flying f*ck about the house and pissed everyone at the hallowed house.

Then Pilati was surrounded with God knows why an aura of pity and his head was supposedly on the chopping block from the start (which I think is the only reason why let go of him bc he was doing a GOOD job).

Now we got the hyped Slimane and apparently thats all we got: hype. Same clothes and literally copies from the archives.

What shocks me the most is the lack of accesories. I hope he gets on his gear, otherwise he will not live to do more St-Lau.

Definitely disappointed. I don't hate it, some 'nice' pieces, but this is nothing new or groundbreaking. I really wish he ditched the boho dresses especially the colour variations, completely unnecessary...they reek of Rachel Zoe and Cavalli

I also think I prefer Stefano to Hedi we will see I guess...at least his probably laughing at Hedi and YSL...

there are no bad clothes at this collection but there are not something truly special, original, something breath-taking. it´s most boring collection i´ve seen this season...

I would much rather see someone wearing Ford's YSL from 10 years ago, than this banal mediocrity, which isn't even worthy of a runway presentation....it warrants only a look book, nothing more.

I have not been thrilled with SL at YSL. But this changed my mind. I think it's wonderful, flowy, with the right spirit. It has got the spirit and effortless, elegant cuts. And that's what is most important.
