Chaotic and probably disastrous in the eyes of several, there are not enough words to describe the latest collection that graced Yves Saint Laurent’s spring runway. Stefano Pilati turned out a well-intentioned collection that is rebellious, inappropriate, ill-fitting and somber, but ultimately infectious. It’s sloppy, gritty and raw silhouettes consumed the form and heavy layered pieces, better suited for fall dominated what was meant for spring. Necklines that plunged as low as mid chest were no match for trousers that were as baggy as they were shapeless, leaving one to ponder how exactly everything was held up. Dressed up in a moody clay-based color palette, the overall shapes of the collection had no definite flow. One minute there was an elongated coat with sleeves hacked off at the shoulders–next being followed by a dainty cropped double breasted jacket. Winged cardigans and broad coats only added more confusion to the mix. However, there is tranquility and reassurance to be found in Pilati’s collection for the sole reason that he gives men options. Separate the individual pieces of his eccentric looks and you are left with phenomenal pieces such as the nomad-inspired tops, zippered ponchos or the subtly winged cardigans. Overall, it is easy to deem the collection insane, but at its heart is a noble direction that ventures the way of the unexpected and challenges fashion’s current norms.
