Just One Look – YSL

January 18th, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (9)

Every year there are pieces that become repeat offenders: out of the hundreds of looks presented each season a few manage to monopolize editorial space and show up in just about every magazine. When you see the same piece in different images the importance of styling, hair & makeup really becomes evident – one wrong element and the clothes can look unappealing.

Lately we’ve been noticing a very chic Yves Saint Laurent coat popping up in editorial after editorial, looking different in each picture.  Made of “pale green lace jacquard with black cornelly embroideries” the coat was look one during the spring / summer show and looked pretty fetching on Kasia Struss. In the magazines the same look takes on a variety of guises: in the pages of Vogue Italia it turns into a harlequin costume for Querelle Jansen, while Harper’s Bazaar uses it as a retro topper for a blonde Bette FrankeW Magazine focuses on the graphic print with a black and white shot and some serious eye makeup on Cara Delevingne, while Elle goes in a flamboyant direction placing it on top of a red satin bra and a knit skirt from Chloe.

    Conceptually – I think Vogue Italia presented it the BEST! (of course, Karl Templer styled it… and probably art-directed it as well…!!!)
    BUT
    Realistically – I think Elle managed to feature the coat in a very wearable way… modern, chic and full of personality!

    F(art)!!!

    The coat looks like a bad cushion cover in my opinion so BRAVO to all this girls for giving it a shot . as they say ” you cant make a silk purse out of a sows ear “
