Yves Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2011 RTW

In contrast to Yves Saint Laurent for Fall - which was a strangely nun-like collection - Stefano Pilati revisited what the house of YSL truly is, but with a hint of playfulness mixed in.  The show started off with pristine pieces, and the Le Smoking done in a very relaxed manner.
Then exotic ruffles and colour broke up the restrained lines.
However, almost as if the burst of fun was a dream, Pilati went back to cleaner pieces, but with a bit of leftover playfulness stubbornly remaining.
With a collection that stays true to YSL's roots, it's good to see that Pilati still has the YSL aesthetic securely in place.

Watch the entire show here.
