Yves St. Laurent Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2012
Again black and black leather were in the spotlights of a menswear-collection. Stefano Pilati presented a younger take on chic dressing, with a sexy and agressive edge. His sharp, power suits were toughened up with biker jacket details. The opening tuxedo with peak lapels in gleaming leather was strong. Leather panels added rigor and a hard edge to wool coats, carrot-shaped flannel pants and sweaters. Loafers glinting with metallic straps added a robotic note.
Outerwear was mainly a variation on the biker jacket. There were some classic styles, too.
