    :idea: shall we help our good friend Francois-Henri Pinault in his hard assignment choosing the new artistic directors, for YSL - Gucci ?

    Suzy Menkes spils the news in HTI by naming Viktor&Rolf and Alexander Mc Queen for YSL while Vogue UK also names Nicholas Ghesquiere, not stating for which house though..

    so, lets add our own nominations and form a FS poll ;)

    YSL
    -Martin Grant
    -Viktor & Rolf
    -Ralph Rucci

    Gucci
    -Helmut Lang
    -Narciso Rodrigues
    -Hussein Chalayan
    -Nicolas G.

    I, personally, would love to see Alber Elbaz back at YSL. I thought his work there was absolutely incredible and totally in line with the sophisticated, strict chic of Yves himself.

    But I doubt that would happen. Especially since he seems quite happy at Lanvin currently.

    I vote for Viktor & Rolf or Olivier Theyskens at YSL. Both have proven themselves to be very capable of creating commercially-minded clothing that still satisfies a more avant garde customer.

    As for Gucci, I don't think any of the designers mentioned are capable of creating that dripping-in-sex luxury vibe a la Tom. I mean, can anyone imagine Nicolas doing bustiers and mini skirts that AREN'T deconstructed or ironic? Unless, Gucci wants to go in totally new direction, in which case Nicolas and Helmut would be good choices.

    I doubt any of them will want the positions. As far I see,they all seem quite content doing what they're already doing. Viktor & Rolf's new venture with L'Oreal and going commercial. Martin Grant even wouldn't divulge since he's begining to recieve very well with his own line. I don't think any of them would have the honest to god time for YSL or Gucci.

    I'm confused. Is YSL owned by the Gucci Group? Does this mean that he will quit designing at YSL as well? Oh I do hope so!

    Yeah,YSL is part of Gucci. Actually,there was alot of controversy between Tom and Yves' partner Eric Berge(sp?)just as they acquired the label. I can't remember the details but apparently Tom didn't live up to his end of the bargain. Anyway,it does mean for both labels,thankfully.

    more on the topic, this time by Cathy, extracts from NYT of today :flower:

    I've also added a Gucci-Group-Poll, including a mix of our own candidates and those hinted by international fashion Press for you to vote...

    B) just in case P.P.R. assosiates are browsing FS, give them a hand deciding guys :p

    Cool poll, Lena! :flower:

    I picked Viktor & Rolf for YSL. ;) Aside from the fact Berge suggested him, I think V&R (and Hedi, but I picked V&R :unsure: ) can dig in the YSL archives while still re-inventing the house - which Ford failed to do.

    McQueen, too, is a good pick for YSL though not at the choices.

    Ghesquiere's take will always be intresting.

    I saw some YSL influeneces in Grant's work, but what he does is way too simple for YSL.

    As for Gucci maybe Grant. But he is way to clasy for Gucci. :unsure:

    we have to think what the name Yves Saint Laurent means for the majority of women,he is supposed to be the one who really invented the modern wardrobe.In a certain point of view,Jean Paul Gaultier is his logical heir.Gucci?it has a tradition of Italian luxury (unfortunately,most people associate Gucci with accessories),so names like Viktor and Rolf (my personal fav) or Ghesquiere,who are brilliant in the avant-gardiste fields,may seem surprising (they have to make their proofs before).Oddly enough,I like the English choices. ;)

    And think about this:The Haute Couture at Yves Saint Laurent.Yves himself admitted he really missed it,and wanted to go back to design.The pret a porter collection would have to be in agreement with the Haute Couture.
