On arrival at the YSL show, guests were invited to view a film by photographer Ari Marcopoulos. The short documentary about tattoo artist Mark Mahoney endorsed this seasons current fascination with tattoos - already seen at LV, Dries, Walter and Yamamoto. The reference to the collection however was somewhat unclear as the clothes followed the recent formula of elegant, soft and refined tailoring. Slim belted coats and jackets in muted grays and browns were more masculine than previous collections but still retained Pilatti's feminine angle. A washed out leopard print that surrounded cumber bands, and high waisted shorts all indicated towards a formal and rather feminine summer. Pilatti has become well respected for his approach to contemporary menswear which relies on luxurious fabrics and cuts, and his steadfast commitment to a particular aesthetic. The YSL customer spans generations and Pilatti is focusing his efforts on enticing the more fashion forward thinkers.
