A brand like Saint Laurent needs a stronger 'message' and identity that distinguishes itself from other houses' identities, but as had already been pointed out; this look is already beaten to death by all of those designers nurtured under Emmanuelle Alt's eye. What a disappointment from a designer who used to have such a visionary voice of his own!
THIS IS THE BEST COMMENT WRITTEN ON TFS REGARDING THE YSL MEETS HEIDI COLLECTION, SO TRUE EVERY WORD... BUT ITS ALSO VERY SAD THAT WE ALL HAVE TO HAVE THIS SAD DISCUSSION, BECAUSE HEIDI IS / WAS REALLY ONE OF THE BIG ONES, I WAS HOPING THAT HE WOULD DO A HIT LIKE PHOEBE. I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR HIM, THIS WAS NOT HIM ON THE STAGE .....
