Pic of the Day: A Golden Farewell

Stefano Pilati takes his last bow as creative director at Yves Saint Laurent.

It's been a whirlwind Fashion Week (month?) with a revolving door of announcements being made of comings and goings at major luxury labels. One such house, the legendary French brand Yves Saint Laurent, announced that this season's show would be the final for its creative director Stefano Pilati. Last night, the designer showed his last collection for YSL, a hard-nosed ode to sharp-tailoring, leather, and sex. The New York Times' Cathy Horyn took the occasion to reflect on the recent string of corporate realignments: "Fashion is a tough, cruel business, but it is also a fragile ecosystem. Filling creative positions isn't just a matter of talent but rather, finding the right talent for the job. And in fashion, one of the most basic ingredients is a talent to create products that people seem to desperately want." No news yet on who will replace Pilati--although many suggest Hedi Slimane will step in--nor where he will end up next.
