Must be the month of comings and goings in the fashion world. Jil Sander's coming home (a separate post for another time i feel!) meanwhile Stefano Pilati has announced he is to leave the house of YSL!!! Headline news surely??! (Most probably amidst rumours of him heading for Dior maybe??! We musn't jump to conclusions!)
Anyhow, a bit of background information for you! Pilati joined as design director in 2000, having previously enjoyed stints with the likes of Giorgio Armani, Prada and Miu Miu. His final collection for YSL will be the AW12/13, shown on March 5th. Surely it will be full of emotion and frenzy, just like any fashion show should be! His successor is rumoured to be Hedi Slimane, the ex-designer of Dior Homme...who has also been linked to Dior once more. Oooh its just one big viscious circle!
One things for sure, Pilatti will definitely be missed...
