Trend Report: The Yves Saint Laurent
The ’70s are everywhere this summer season, but that of Yves Saint Laurent are only really a hit. Stefano Pilati (YSL for now) but also the collections of Marc Jacobs and Emilio Pucci celebrated the revival.
Yves Saint Laurent brought the last century, including ‘le smoking’ pantsuit for a dandy-like image of women. Other sharp-cut pieces and a sensual and strong color palette according to the YSL style. Moreover, the inventive Saint Laurent in the 70s safari look, albeit in chic and slick manner.
Stefano Pilati YSL recycled thus the universe itself from the last century. He came to this spring with ‘le smoking’ in a flowing crepe fabric and classic pieces with a surprising twist, such as a stiff-looking blouse transparent pale and a jumpsuit with open back.
Albino Albino D’Amato of Milanese label was clearly his muse in Yves Saint Laurent. The huge straw hat that bore the first model was a wink and then paraded the platform on many models in typical on YSL-inspired ensembles. Remember the YSL vibrant colors and a top that connects to the front and has a light blouson shape at the back. Numerous strapless jumpsuits and long floor trapeze dresses in bright colors stole the show.
Jacobs has long been an admirer of Saint Laurent’s work and the summer collection he also chose to outlaw 70s. The colors of Marc Jacobs’ winter collection looked more sober, but this spring bears the Jacobs girls striking colors and flower shapes to learn a lot.
Also 70s fashion photographer Guy Bourdin in the spring / summer 2011 collection with models Luisa Bian Chin cited a large fabric flower in her hair wearing red. Voluminous dresses with a seductive and Rive Gauche (YSL also) look and silk halter dresses with striking prints were also reminiscent of the style of the famous designer.
Besides lots of color, the 70s are marked by long flowing dresses and jumpsuits that fit almost any figure. To completely make additional YSL is a hint of sex appeal also required.
Also a bow on the shoe or shirt (or a single bow on the right pump á la Albino) gives a nod to the 70s YSL period. Immaculate black and white in the mix of color are also a shot in the Yves rose.
