    I like the show...I'm glad he redid the Asian inspired look...And for you Natalia Vodianova fans, she did this show!

    very inconsistent..i have to wait to see the rest...nothing breathtaking, though...the only thing he did at this house that i liked was the gypsy collection because not only did it remind me of "real"YSL, but it was also new and modern...


    *didn't anyone else notice that tom's red velvet jacket is available in blue for women in the GUCCI a/w o4 collection he just showed....sorry, i can't post it, but i just got my new i-mac and i haven't figured out how to do that yet...you can check it out for yourselves at style.com...he showed it with a pair of :sick: lace and passimentry pants-also blue....for those of you who -'just have to have it'

    :innocent: :flower:

    Your so right softgrey look number 23 I think Elise Crombez wore it......I think Tom wore it because he said that fall winter 1996 was his favorite collection that he did for the house of Gucci.

    :woot: Yeah, totally shocked the hell outta me to see her opening the show! I'm glad, Calvin can sign her, but I love her so much more with Tom.
    On another note.....
    I really loved this collection. Yes, the Asian thing has been done, but I think it worked well. The first word that came to mind when I looked at the whole collection (at YSL.com you can see the whole thing) was fierce. I don't know why, but this collection was strong. No, it's not completely changing the face of fashion like so many feel that Mr. Saint Laurent did, but the clothes were beautiful. The colors were great, the lines were interesting and it was all kind of elegant in a way. This is the second time I have ever seen Tom do prints (other then animal) and considering that he isn't known as a person to use patterns, I kinda liked it. It was totally unexpected. It was also unexpected because, who would think that so soon after the S/S 03 Asian theme it would be done again.

    I'm still kinda confused though as to why so many people feel he wasn't "true to the spirit of the house" I don't get it. His ideal woman is very similar to Yves' ideal woman isn't it? Stong, confident, femenine, chic......So how is that so out of sync with what Yves did? Also, he wasn't designing for YSL the person, he was designing for YSL the name, kind of adding another layer to the YSL legacy. IMO, he would have sucked if he just tried to recreate Yves' past creations without adding something of his own.
    Au revoir Tom :heart:

    damn good collection...seems like ford put more focus into this one...or maybe stefano pilati is actually very good..whatever...this is a very good collection...can't wait to see those slouchy suede boots up close....that's a YSL boot is ever there was one... :heart:

    i especially loved the eveningwear...it reminded me of galliano when he was good :rolleyes:

    the hair was still too GUCCI for me...i would like to see a more definitive look for ysl, but i liked it very much...

    i also loved the wide sash belts tied at the waist, also very YSL... :flower:

    that's what i mean by"keeping the spirit of the house" :wink:

    I think this is quite a good YSL collection as a whole. It's nice to see Ford doing something like this for YSL before he leaves :flower:

    some of my favorite looks:
