    Apart from his last collection, when TF really did 'buck up' his ideas, Tom Ford's stuff was either badly copied or trash - at least Pilati's collection was well copied. Perhaps the media aren't raving because there palms aren't being tickled with quite so much cash and their trashy mainstream darling just went beyond the point of no coming back.

    one thing tom ford understood was making guaranteed hits. the reason the house did not perform as it should have was because tom was busy growing the brand (i mean i shudder to think how expensive the newest ny ysl store cost)while also turning out hits. the mombasa continues to shine as one of tom ford's successes as do several other of his revived hits (the sexy safari jacket, to name one of many)...i really think that only time will tell with respect to how well pilati's ysl sells.

    There's other reviews of the show in the Designers and Collections section under YSL SS05.

    IMO the main problem with Pilati's collection as ooposed to Ford's is that Ford, while using past Saint Laurent themes and inspirations, put his own signature and updated by making them sexy. In a way, Pilati moved the label back instead of forward because he didn't introduce anything new.

    That's just my take on why it wouldn't get well recieved.
