Yves Saint Laurent S/S 2010 men

In men’s wear, the suit is often perceived as a sacrosanct structural form, almost impossible to modify in significant fashion. Not so for Stefano Pilati. The Yves Saint Laurent designer took a bold and freewheeling approach to modernize tailoring for spring. “I want to help men be a little more open with the way they dress, to shift the identity of tailoring … and work on finding a man’s uniform outside the conventional suit,” Pilati said before the show. First, a contour-conscious, double-breasted jacket with two buttons and a cutaway hem was paired with high-waist pleated pants. The convention- breaking then extended to casual wear with T-shirts fashioned into jacket-like shapes or dramatic, draping tunics. Underscoring the relaxed approach, Pilati sent out shirts with faded polka dots or stripes and knitwear with inconsistent ribbing, while washed leather over motorcycle jackets added a wilder look. Yves Saint Laurent’s men’s wear is for a sophisticated customer - “contemporary but not young,” according to Pilati - and for spring, the designer brought just the right dose of freshness to the elegant man’s world.
