Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2011

Spectacular show. Really goes to show how great of a designer Stefano Pilati is. The hair and makeup were phenomenal, and I really liked the collars. You know I'm a nut over menswear. The patent leather gold chain shoes were really great, and I love the other touches of bold gold jewelry. What's up with the whole dirty shoe look?

The wool with leather mixture is wonderful, almost Chanel-esque. The cuts are signature YSL, I love that he doesn't stray far from the roots. Perhaps the best part was toward the end, when they debuted the colorful stud shoe and the half sheer jumpsuits. Stella had some similar pieces, I really like that peek-a-boo trend.
