Fall 2008 Men's Reviews - Yves Saint Laurent

Stefano Pilati's latest collection for Yves Saint Laurent featured two kinds of sublime dandyism. The first half of the collection featured an updated version of the late 60s, early 70s silhouette, with loose, slightly flared trousers serving as the perfect base for more timeless coats and jackets, all in relatively muted tones. The second mode was strikingly more modern, featuring rich shades of pure green and true blue, along with gently beautiful maya blue and velvety aubergine. Mixed with anorak-inspired black trenches or cropped trousers, the effect was deliriously of-the-moment. Dapper gentlemen around the world will certainly appreciate Pilati's increasingly recognizable take on classic French luxe. More of my favorites from the show here, and the whole collection here.
