Bravo, Hedi. Bringing the original Rive gauche woman back to life! I've been waiting for this.

This is a very respectful debut collection for him. Classic Saint Laurent elements all all there. The bows, Look 3 screams out "le smoking", transparent blouses, safari jacket in lesther, that 70's Saint Laurent bohemian flair. It's all there.

Exactly!

Very Saint Laurent,very Riviere Gauche...But I'm not a fan of the huge bow ties,they looks dated.

I'm sorry to disagree but I don't really think his 'rocker' aesthetic is THAT fresh now, in 2012. This is very 70s YSL but i don't care for this one bit (apart from the tailoring of some of the suits and a particular look nothing here excites me) and omg whoever mentioned cavalli: that's what this was reminding me of.

It looks way too familiar for comfort... Maybe it´s better on closer inspection, but this is just... ...Topshop?

Reminds me a bit of Dior Homme Fall 2005.

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.
exactly...
many of these pieces are things lifted straight from the ysl archives and i don't think his take is particularly modern...

Mmm... well... Kate Moss will love it.

Me, not so much, was hoping for something sleeker from him.
