Just a quick one here of YSL. Fashion blasphemy though it may be, YSL is sometimes hit-or-miss, piece-by-piece for me. This was one of those shows, although they did have a few pieces which I really liked.

Kasia Struss. I love, love, love this silhouette. I’ve designed many looks with it myself – the long, narrow, deep-V coat and a kicky short skirt sticking out. So nice.

Sigrid Agren. Same idea, though this one strikes me as a little more severe. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Karmen Pedaru. It doesn’t look it in the photo, but watch the clip and you’ll see, this suit has nice motion to it, which I love.

Ella Kandyba. Some – most – of YSL’s white pieces towards the end were rather disappointing to me. I thought they felt too early 1900s-nightgown-y and grandmotherly. This one does a nice job of keeping its freshness despite the puffy sleeves.

And, of course, I have to include Freja Beha Erichsen in the giant polar bear-esque coat. Though coat seems to be an understatement with this beast.  🙂
