Uhh, what? I've seen young people wearing Stefano's YSL RTW and let's not even talk about the accessories including footwear and leather which spanned across all ages.

Actually, Pilati always looks a little off because he was ahead of the game. His FW2011 would fit in very well this SS2013.

I'm somewhat shocked by Slimane...was expecting a "smokier" collection, more Tina Chow than Stevie Nicks...didn't think he has all *these* bottled up struggling to burst forth onto a catwalk...

Picture any girl in her 20s in any of the collections Pilati put out in the last 2-3 years and she'll look far more modern than someone in this. This is actually the kind of thing my aunts consider youthful and crazy. That version of youthful and crazy. No thanks.

It's a beautiful collection, but I didn't like it very much, mainly because it didn't Feel YSL, I know that most of these dresses were created by YSL before Gucci and Cavalli, but with YSL creativity and amazing heritage, why would you just redo the stuff that all have been doing now, he could put prints, and embroidery a la YSL! I like his redo to the color combinations though, specially the blue and green, so YSL! I believe he'll improve

This collection is good. There's a somewhat vintage 70's vibe to it.

that's all the industry cares about, creating a buzz and selling like water

Hedi is a very good photographer and an average stylist
let's face it, he's not a 'real' designer but he does the job for ysl

even the SL buzz was part of a PR game
we need to stop being romantic with fashion
it's an industry, it's not an atelier

oh how i've missed your comments...always right on point!

you are right about that...the kate moss's of the world will eat. this. up.
but imo it's so dated...
i want to see someone wear this on the red carpet (because you know that's the next sl pr move)...

It's an ok collection, but dear lord, those kind of hats need to go away already. The kind of hats where it's so obvious the person is having trouble with one's vision simply because the hat is blocking their eyes. The sad thing is, people wear these hats on the streets!

IDK alot of it looks like what we have seen at Gucci, Cavalli etc in recent years its not too exciting or modern I prefer Tom Ford/ Steffano's take on the brand

I guess it is his intention to try follow quite closely to ysl's original designs. We'll have to wait a couple more seasons until we can see more of 'Slimane' in the collection.

I never disliked Stefano's direction. I just never felt there was a diverse aesthetic to his clothing, Hedi's approach is clearly diverse...which is what YSL was all about.
