I feel Hedi was possibly looking at all of the 70's icons/bad girls such as Anita, Marianne & Britt, which in retrospect is quite fascinating, but the execution was not.
I still don't understand why they replaced Stefano when he was doing a pretty stellar job at Saint Laurent, in my opinion anyway, his collections were successful in sales and editorially.
I have to say I am pretty let down by his womenswear debut, he should of stuck to designing menswear.
*Stefano is a much better designer , but the fact is the collection was not selling as well as the shareholders were expecting
they thought they had to water down
so they watered down with an over estimated hyped 'designer'
*if i was Stefano Pilati i would be buying people drinks tonight
