collection images: yves saint laurent, resort

by Jeremy Danté

clearly translated is the nautical inspiration of the 2012 resort YSL collection. under the creative direction of stefano pilati, the french based luxury label has seen greater forms of design minimalism & intellectually inspired collections; while talk of ousting & replacement have been flying rapidly through the air. of unexpected popularity after what seemed like a lull of reception, the work of pilati has now been embraced by YSL cliente & here a fitting resort collection is presented. beautiful red leather is seen alongside stiped looks as anchors adorned models in pattern & on the collections accessories as well. a range of silhouettes was seen as the back end of the collection was seemingly dipped in floral, adding a range of design versatility to the set which provided a number of cuts, styles & forms. overall, the collection lightly serves it’s purpose for the pre-season; whether this is just a taste of SS12 or a complete different direction has yet to be seen but we shall see.
