Inspiration: We don't know what goes on in Stefano Pilati's brain but we know it's amazing and if we could guess, we'd assume he channeled a classy jet-setter from the 60's a meets lady in shining armor for his spring 2012 Yves Saint Laurent collection.
Top Trends: Classic prints like paisley made a cameo as well as super trendy sea foam greens. There was gold metal embellisments and panels on everything from shoes and handbags to the buns atop the models' heads.
Accessories: Pilati proves he's brilliant when it comes to designing not only clothing but shoes and accessories once again. We kind of died over all of them including the gorgeous platforms slingbacks with metal reinforced toes, suede booties embellished with metal plates and the suede clutches finished with a gold, metal filigree type design. The models rocked buns finished with awesome metal armor type scrunchie things.
Favorite Looks: The jewel-tone bomber jacket and skirt combo was really cool as well as the baby doll dresses and typical white suit.
Thoughts: This collection is very Pilati, very YSL chic and being a fan of the fashion house, I am beyond satisfied with Stefano's work this season. The clothing and accessories were great and totally reminiscent of the 60's and who doesn't love the 60's?
