    such a good thread.....
    and so totally timely considering the recent gucci and marc jacobs collections that appear to have been lifted straight out of monsieur st laurent's archives...

    :p

    It's images like this (from 1971) that makes me feel that Tom Ford didn't bring a lot of new stuff to YSL.

    well his job wasn't to design for tom ford. his job was to carry to torch of yves saint laurent.

    Why does anyone at all be employed as a creative director if all that needs to be done is to copy the archives...?

    ^^
    ilj- i agree...
    and i would say that's often the difference between a creative director and a designer...
    for example-that's why nicola formichetti is creative director at mugler and there is someone else who is actually designing...
    tom ford is really more of a stylist than a true designer---
    i think the same can be said of marc jaobs most of the time...
    but it's a valid skill set that i think can be very useful in keeping the image of the brand on track...

    those images you posted are f*ing amazing, btw!...thx...
    :woot:...

    Or, any YSL/JPG comparisons? I know there are more than you can shake a stick at (ethnic looks, menswear as womenswear..hell, I swear I've seen a pic of a YSL cone-bra before JPG showed one)
