Dripping in glamour the Yves Saint Laurent woman is confident, rich and ready to prowl come next season. She’s swapped her frou frou dresses of SS12 in favour of sixties style- round toed block heels paired with a patterned swing coat started the show- and once again struck gold-quite literally when it came to footwear and hair accessories.
A palette of iron grey and forest green may dabble with autumn but cool mint and popping pink insured this collection remained in the summer months. And even more so when seen on cropped sleeve jackets and round-neck blouses that slipped across the skin.
Yet it was the backless blouses in the halterneck form that call for discussion. Tucked into ankle skimming trousers and knee length skirts they sexed-up what ordinarily may have been a formal look.
Prior to this collection hitting the Parisian runways rumours have been rife as to whether Stefano Pilati is soon to exit the brand. Yet one would question such fashion hearsay after even just a quick glimpse of the new collection. Looks move seamlessly from one to another but never tire continuing the reign and appeal of this historic brand.
