This is absolutely brilliant, gorgeous and exquisite. I love the sharp cutting, use of leather and this simple, pure elegance. Beautiful.

Even though it's such a cliché when it comes to saying Goodbye, but it truly might be one of my favourite collections from Stefano. I'm really sad he's leaving at the moment I have been becoming a fan of his designs for the house, but on the other hand, this is a perfect collection to be remembered.

They made a huge mistake firing him. This and Pilati's last few offerings have all been so luxe, sexy, total femme-fatale collections that were beautifully crafted and innovative. The exact aesthetic that I want to see from the YSL brand. He will be hard to replace.

I am not understanding all the praise... The only thing I enjoy out of this was the way he used the chainmail

It's a nice collection, but it really isn't anything to jump up and down for, at least not for me. It's quite a standard and safe collection. I much prefer last season's. With this collection, I can certainly see why his contract was not renewed. There's nothing special to be discussed or to garner any attention.

I can't believe this is his last collection, it's absolutely stunning and perfect

I will miss his work dearly.

This is a seriously perfect collection. Every single look is a hit!!! As much as I love Hedi Slimane I agree with HeatherAnne they're really making a huge mistake. I think everybody agrees that he's really comfortable at the helm of the house now and even though his latest collections have been impeccable; Hehad delivered some very stunning moments at the beginning of his career at the house. I've always believed that he was the perfect man to embody and create the modern YSL woman. You can still feel the essence of Mr Saint Laurent: the strong, ubber sexy and so elegant androgynous aesthetic of his designs as well as a certain touch of exoticism and yeah a bit of eroticism too. Yet Stefano pushed it forward making it more actual more appealing in our society. I made a little retrospective of all his collections before looking at this one and I really don't understant how you can choose to get rid of a designer who evolves so well. And it's not only the collections but the whole image that he built during his time. Delivering one it-bag after another, one stellar supermodel campaign after another, keeping the name YSL trendy and in the moment without making it flashy or in your face like Karl at Chanel or even Marc at Louis Vuitton tend to do. His work was humble, chic and honest even when people didn't like his work I always found it well-thought-out, inspiring and with a pasionate.
I'm really glad he got a standing ovation, not only because this is for me the best collection from PFW so far, but because he deserves it and like Raf Simons he will be greatly greatly miss. Hedi Slimane better bring his A-game.
I'm sure well I hope we're gonna see plenty more of beautiful collections by Mr Pilati.

I liked Pre-Fall better, but this is quite nice too. Still, I don't think I will miss Pilati at YSL all that much. He did a great job but none of his collections for the house were all that memorable to me.
I kind of really like the chainmail dresses
