Stefano Pilati quits at Yves Saint Lauren to start a whole new career at Armani?
You guys think its true?

I ve seen it at a dutch lifestyle program yesterday. Here you can see a repeat of the episode:

I don't think it's true, and I hope it's not anyway. For the time being, I can't picture Armani without Giorgio. And if it IS true, would Pilati be designing both the men's and women's lines? Ugh! His last men's collection for YSL was a disaster...

i think that's true,we've already discussed it in 'Karl Lagerfeld to leave Chanel' thread!
But I'd love that idea,Hedi at YSL, Pilati at Armani would be really great!

I actually like what Pilati is doing at YSL...

I nearly had a heart-attack when I saw this in the latest threads until I saw the questionmark and realised it was in "Rumour has it..." I thought it had finally been confirmed!

It's interesting with Pilati....I don't dislike him but compared to YSL himself he does not seem as complex as a person. Not as truly troubled, not as intense. He seems like he would fit better at Armani from a temperamental perspective.

If he does quit YSL I hope they choose Hedi Slimane to continure the womenswear and meswear.

I hope its true. I haven't really liked a single collection since fw08. I wonder who will replace him... G.Valli would be great!

I hope it's true, for sake of YSL. His collections for the label the last couple years have been quite sad.

To be honest, I don't care which way it would go. I like Pilati at YSL, but at the same time another round of fashion switches would be interesting.

Any more news on wether its true or not? I hope not, because I just love Armani's collections and don't want them to suddenly become bad (not saying Stefano hasn't done a good job at YSL but they are different designers who like different things).

and there sure would be plenty of hype if he were hired.

Stefano's work for YSL is amazing. I can't picture anyone else designing for the brand. I like Armani's current work, but I feel as though he lacks a distinct aesthetic identification. Stefano could definitely bring that to the brand, but I wouldn't want to see him leave YSL.
