    I think he's paid his dues and has earned the right to complain. :lol:

    i agree with astrid... yves has already redefined fashion once... why should it be up to him to do it again? he has paid his dues and given more than enough. too bad, no one has learned from his example... they just copy him. :sick:

    OK I admit I have a crush on Tom Ford :blush: so I can't really be objective...But some of my arguments may be right afterall lol.

    I remember the YSL Rive Gauche stores just four years ago before they got a makeover. They were tacky white/gold places where only old ladies still shopped. The Brussels store hadn't had a refurbishing since the 1970's when the store opened: the carpet had holes and you couldn't see Loulou de la Falaise jewelry because the glass on the widow cabinet was completely scrached. It didn't even have that '70's retro charm. The rtw clothes were granny-boring (except for the trench coats and the tuxs). And all those awfull licences :sick: Even the parfums division was going bad : Champagne/Yvresse big flop! Ofcourse there was still the sublime Couture and arrival of Heidi Slimane. Basicly YSL was a sleeping beauty with a glorious past.

    I wasn't sure about Tom Ford designing for YSL after his first season. But after that he showed beautiful commercial collections, all with references to the great master (Tuxedo, bohemian, Belle de jour, 1940's, africa...).

    During all the '80's and '90's Monsieur Saint Laurent kept complaining about wanting to stop. He said he couldn't because the jobs of hondreds were in his hands. He became an alcoholic addicted to pain killers and suffered of many depressions. Sometimes when he came to greet the audience at the end of a show he looked like a zombie. It was all very sad...
    Since his retirement Monsieur's health improved and he gained his "joie de vivre" back, tho his remarks on Tom Ford are bitter. But he was always negative about younger designers even about Galliano. The only two other designers work he supported were JP Gaultier and Hedi Slimane.

    I really would like him to come back as a theatre costume/set designer, because this was his real passion as a young boy and it's where he really can use his full fantasy potentiel.

    Sorry for the long post.:heart: you all even if we dessagree on some issues. Hey! This is only fashion.lol
