(PARIS) Yves Saint Laurent
Stefano Pilati's dark sendoff may have been accidentally apropos, considering that the designer concocted his final collection for Yves Saint Laurent before knowing he would be bidding adieu to the label, but it certainly felt fitting for the occasion. Slick leathers and a moody palette based in black and accented with hunter green, burgundy, and multiple shades of grey took shape in a uniformly cinched-waist silhouette with lots of structured coats atop either simple, plunging necklines or more demure collarbone-obscuring high necked styles. Chainmail was crafted into myriad shells, with or sans sleeves, or factored into trim detailing; black leather gloves, the occasional snippet of dark fur, severely slicked coifs and vampy, saturated lips rounded out Pilati's farewell effort.
