Yves Saint Laurent Paris.

At Yves Saint Laurent it was all about boyish androgyny  mixed with gothic influences. Pilati’s show begun with the presentation of a film (viewable on the website) produced by photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for the house of Yves Saint Laurent. In the film a woman describes a pair of trousers in a very peculiar, but sensous, even orgasmic way.  Perhaps it’s purpose was to bring emphasis to the erotic power of menswear.

As Pilati’s film ended and the runway show commenced the only connection between the clothing and film was in the texture of such garments, such texture which the woman was reffering to in the film. As the woman in the film had said you would have to touch such fabrics to actually experience them. 

Pilati experimented with silhouette. Cropped jackets were paired with wide trousers, settling the boxy shape of jackets. Billowy pants and leather jackets were reminiscent of Dior Homme by Hedi Slimane, while jackets; with  impeccable tailoring, cropped peacoats with peak lapels- were signature YSL.
