PARIS FALL 2010....STELLA, YSL











STELLA McCARTNEY




At first I was not a fan of hers, but as time has passed I have seen the collection develop into what i would consider a retail power house. The clothes invite sales with simple, tasteful, refined clean lines and shapes. There is no hidden agenda..........these are clothes that go to work, lunch or out in the evening.




YVES ST LAURENT




In a season when the true vocabulary of YSL should have been used with great aplomb, Mr. Pilati was on the right track but then it seemed to never get to the destination. What shoud have been a wow collection turned into a slightly better than so so collection which barely scratched the surface of what made this brand great.
