Yves Saint Laurent
Spring-Summer 2012 – The stern faces of the models synthesised the idea of a power trip, the YSL girl knows what she wants and how to wear it. Think thick halter-neck tops and strong black belts were combined with Aztec prints purporting the printed pattern is as boisterous as ever. Over-sized coats came to the knee, and sleeves stopped below the wrist. Silk blouses excluded the bias symbolising the YSL girl is the modern women evident in the black tapered trousers preparing her for work. But the YSL is still fabulous. Tops were backless, and plunging necklines were both sassy and sexy, especially on the black dresses embellished with gold glitter. The rich autumnal palette came notably in dark green, indigo, dark blue and black interrupted by pink and mint green. The collection was class and confident. This lady is as smart as she is sexy.
