Before the YSL show started today, guests got a peek at the latest short film No Way Back. It’s a short documentary about tattoo artist Mark Mahoney. It didn’t have anything to do with the YSL fashion house, but it showed yet another form of art.

Stefano Pilati gave his models a very clean look today. Their hair was tidy, their skin looked good and their eyes were focussed. The clothes also had a clean cut and all the fuss was left behind. What we saw, were well-tailored designs. Those weren’t necessarily very trendy, yet gave the men a sophisticated look.

Pleated pants and fully buttoned blouses were combined with suit jackets. Over those jackets wide bands were placed, around the waist in some looks. In other outfits the male models wore small waist-belts.

Their were multiple shorts, which amazed us at first sight, while they were high-waisted, wide and short. They had small classic prints on them and were worn with sandals.

Overall there were no unnecessary accessories, prints or extra layers. Also, colors were absent; instead Pilati used natural shades like beige, grey, dark brown and black.

Less is more.
