Paris Catwalk Fashion Show fw2010: Yves Saint Laurent
For his fall/winter collection Yves Saint Laurent decided to make a movie. The brand hired Bruce Weber to produce a short film called Ain’t Nothin’ Like The Real Thing. The film, which contained footage of the male YSL models posing and dancing, quickly made it’s way around the web, shortly after it’s release.
Unfortunately in the film Stefano Pilati’s new designs for YSL couldn’t be seen. Therefor he held a show. He designed perfect trenchcoats with buttons at the back and checked blazers. In several looks he used a scarf as a belt on top of a coat. And some long tunic shirts were visible from under the jackets.
Yet Pilati’s jumpsuits and drop-crotch pants (popular in women’s fashion at the moment) were most impressive. The jumpsuits had a wide rounded neckline and all had a matching belt in the same fabric. The models wore them with T-shirts and jackets.
Gray and black were the main shades in this collection. And although Pilati used some female items, he managed to turn them into real menswear for next winter.
