The Discreet Charm of Bourgeoisie - YSL

Yves Saint Laurent Winter 2011/12 - Stefano Pilati played with those Christobal Balenciaga volumes with mushrooming boule-shaped capes and the chicest parka - while here and there he literally evoked moments of Saint Laurent history.


Pilati's finale of sleek white dresses, touched with gold in a chain belt or fine top stitching had a sly sexuality to them, the hint of excitement beneath the deceptively prim exterior. But while these clothes are a persuasively chic proposition for the modern woman, with just enough edgy glamour, the inspiring exhibition "Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, La Révolution de la Mode," makes one long for something of the sheer joyous exubernace that is the house's legacy.

"The irrational, inexplicable Desire" for LV

LOUIS VUITTON Fall/Winter 2011/12 Collection by Marc Jacobs

Breakfast time in the real world, but there we were, being greeted by lines of uniformed maids poffering trays of vodka shots, champagne, and espresso in black-marbled faux hotel foyer, with an ornate grilled elevator at its center, at some indetermine hour of darkness. ...

But where - dare we ask? - had the idea for the night-porter peaked caps, rubber boots, and stocking-tops, which were sequenced among tailoring and prim white-collared dresses, sruck him? Mayfair, it turned out. "I stay at Claridge's in London," Jacobs said backstage after a show whose kinkiness formed a continuum with the hobble-skirted strictness of his own collection, "I love it when I see all these exquisite creatures - socialites; maids; people you don't know if they're hookers or not - stepping out of the lift all hours of the day and night". As it happens, one of them might easily have been Kate Moss.
