Yves St. Laurent Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2011
For the YSL:-menswearcollection Stefano Pilati found inspiration at Savile Row and the Mod style so unmistakenly linked to Sixties London and still there. Choosing this theme the designer left the wider pants behind (a fit other fashionbrands are showing this season) and made cigarette-pipe trousers and big shoes the foundation for innovative jackets. Some got a velvet trim, breast pockets, compact lapels and clustered buttons which added a youthful character to the new tailoring.
Turtlenecks or band-collared shirts added color. In a season with a lot of outerwear the coats Pilati showed were rather refreshing because of the trapeze-silhouette and use of fabric.
