Go here to read a great article/interview in last Sunday's New York Times Magazine about myboyfriendStefanoPilati, genius designer of YSL.
And then check out YSL's newest label, a capsule collection called Edition 24 that features this
perfect, perfect shirtdress with fabulous embroidered detail around the pockets. If it came in a different color I'd be hocking a kidney about now. Edition 24, if memory serves, was designed to be a collection of pieces that will travel well, and there's lots of jersey knits and slightly schlumpy jackets. It's fantastic.
And then go here to buy this star-emblazoned t-shirt,
a great, inexpensive way to get a piece of this spring's YSL collection. The Spring '08 collection wasn't greeted with the same swooning enthusiasm as this past Fall's, but I happened to love it and those stars? Are everywhere. (Including my own feet.) You can also get the tragically chic, oh-so-French dress version of this look,
which I would have already snapped up if I weren't trying to cut back on the LBDs.
Oh, Stefano. I can't wait until we meet and I'm officially your muse. The long, leisurely espresso-drinking sessions in a café on the Blvd. Saint Germain that will turn into long, leisurely wine-drinking sessions in a café on the Blvd. Saint Germain, during which we will discuss at length fashion and love and come up with brilliant ideas on both. SO looking forward to it.
