I was expecting something stronger. This is actualy quite soft.
I dont see much impact...other than hype.
I can change my opinion tho.

lol nowfashion. the server must've exceeded any reasonable bandwidth

anyway, from what i've seen / im seeing, this looks like he relied heavily on the 70s archives (mixing it here and there with his -boring- 'rock'n'roll' obsession), which is the safest thing he could be doing, and still everyone's gonna cry out for genius, and a new era, avant garde amazingness etc ... which really arent there.

there is no question, from the few images we've seen this IS a true YSL collection

The last thing I'm interested these days, besides minimal s*it, is fantasizing about Anita & Co. or being the groupie of the Dior Homme rockstar from the mid 00s. The hats, florals, ruffles, coats can go.. I'm only keeping my hope on the suits part of this.

I respectfully disagree. From the looks of it, Hedi did exactly the same thing. He applied his own personal vision on some iconic YSL pieces.
The bad thing here is, this particular fusion is quite reminiscent of other things I have seen on the runway years ago, still do once in a while, mainly coming from Cavalli.... Not sure if this rock/hobo chic is as relevant. Pretty and sexy though, it is.

Looks like something Cavalli does. Still I don't understand why Stefano was let go; he was modern but retained the YSL look and YSL's playfulness (the strawberry prints?) Cavalli/Moschino vibe I get here.

This is amazing. Hedi really 'gets' YSL in a way that Stefano Pilati never really did. He also manages to infuse some of his rocker aesthetic into it, so it comes off as fresh and not like some copycat Saint Laurent collection.

I agree with one of the previous posts. This is all hype. I was also expecting something more. I think it's nothing exciting. I miss Stefano. I'm slightly reminded of Alber's previous collections in Lanvin but Alber did it infinitely better.

The shoes leave me cold. this is a cotton candy collection. might seem okay but really there's nothing there.
