Yves Saint Laurent - Fall 2008

Stefano Pilati blessed the catwalk for fall 2008, with a futuristic collection which made me think Rigorous Sexuality. Model after model the collection portrayed continuous elegance and sharp structured tailoring. Julianne Moore, Kayne West and Vanity Fair’s Elizabeth Saltzman were all there to witness his talent of geometric angles on tweeds and felts he used on skirts and coats. A contemporary collection which was very sharp at the top with bowl cut wigs the models were wearing to the freedom at the bottom, with movement in the clothes. His idea of creating a futuristic show, slowly made me think 21st century robots on a catwalk, maybe it was the look of the models which created a dark movement with the sleek dark sunglasses cut across there eyes, with there full black painted lips. But still you recognise the fantastic appeal of the clothes, like the gorgeous tweed pencil skirt with a royal blue hemline, and the best thing was there was a jacket to match. The use of Donegal tweeds, cashmere, Tokyo couture silk and Flock made this collection what it was…. AMAZING.
