(Y)Saint Laurent Fall2013: Oh No (S)HE DI'INT

Well just when you thought that voracious sinkhole in Florida had done its worst, we see that it's stretched all the way to Paris to the house that YSL built. Hedi Slimane's 3rd collection for his retreaded Saint Laurent "line" is even more unsettling than his first. What happened to Rachel Zoe? Why didn't John Galliano stop at the studio if only to apply a bit of lip gloss and use the toilet? Pierre Berge must be rethinking his praise for the savior of the house. Stefano Pilatti must look awfully attractive about now. Even Jason Wu would have done less damage. Hell, give Zang Toi a shot. What we saw was an overt f%*k y*u to the press, the industry and all the poor slobs that thought Slimane, like L.Ron Hubbard, held the secrets of the universe. Well, I for one have to say:

NO

 NEIN

NON

NYET

would love to hear more on your thoughts. though i thought his first collection was fugly, the appearance of hats everywhere suggests that he is more influential that what simple aesthetics could indicate.

So I gather Fluff that you did not like YSL collection at all! LOL

Grunge via Top Shop looks better than that.

Oh gosh. So disappointing. And to re-introduce grunge this late in the game with a brand with so much influence as this is really sad. Plane Jane, conservative, non-risk taking collection. Is this what people really want with fashion these days?

(And didn't "nu-grunge" come back like, 3 years ago already? Why is this just now being explored with YSL? SO boring)

Its 2013 folks, let's look towards the future.

seriously! really now?
there are no words for this collection. i like a mind fuck but this was just simply fuck, this can't be good.

ppr is prob regretting their choice and in my dreams are in talks with pilati to come back.

lately i've been thinking about lacroix and how i miss his point of view, his refinement, culture and know how of fashion

. fashion has gone on a trip to nowhere. the message i feel many designers are sending is it does not matter anymore.

what's your opinion on the McQueen show?
I thought it was rather gorgeous.

Fluff seems to have run away and joined the circus....or run away to avoid the circus?
