I like the detailing on these shoes and this skirt, its the most feminine thing Pilati has attempted in the last few seasons.

Some of the looks are gorgeous but nothing revolutionary, in my opinion, a step back for Stefano and Yves Saint Laurent. Love those floppy hats. The satin dresses are awful, as are the shoes which is a shame because usually YSL shoes are highlights. I'm unsure whether this convent vibe will translate to everyday wearability.

It all looks so old, I only like the green glasses; nothing has come near the sheer perfection of FW08 from Stefano, at least for me.

But I guess they can keep selling shoes and bags

Wow, those shoes are totally stupid.
No other way to describe them.

Well at least its not all butch like the past few seasons, but its still so.....empty. Yves Saint Laurent lost its energy a long time ago.

Mohawks on shoes? I'll pass

The entire collection otherwise? I say it's one of his most decent and safer collections But agreeing with cesarcmma This doesn't come close to his F/W 08/09 collection.

The only thing that bothered me other than the shoes were the satin dresses in the end, they seemed cheap and looked like some College Fashion Design student attempted to make them...

Come Stefano, we know you can do better than this!

This is such a weird collection. I am not a fan at all. I am really confused by it... those chains? The horrible jewel tone satin pieces? WHAT? Am I the only one who is completely baffled?

He's managed to make sheer blouses, above the knee skirts/dresses with 6 inch heels look austere and completely not sexy at all. How can you make chiffon ruffles look harsh?

I may have to come back to this later but right now I'm somewhat appalled by what he's doing with YSL.

I like the beginning and the shoes.

I totally agree about the lack of femininity.
And even though I like most of the tailored black looks, nothing feels new. I just don't understand why he's stifling his talent, when he's done so much better.
