Paris Fashion Week Yves Saint Laurent AW11.jpg

Despite weeks of rumblings that Stefano Pilati would soon be exiting Yves Saint Laurent, the designer has battled these rumours with a sharply tailored A/W collection. The mostly monochrome line tapped into English elegance with tweed suits, drop waists, voluminous capes, cocoon coats and Prince of Wales check.

There were shots of colour with a purple feathered dress, blue silks and a multicoloured chain swing coat. Referencing YSL's iconic '60s and '70s history, Pilati successfully infused his modern take by parading a series of all-white looks for the finale walk through.
