Yves Saint Laurent // Stefano Pilati debuted his last collection for the house of YSL and I don't think he could have done it better. The collection was dark with black being the dominate color, perhaps symbolizing the end of one journey. Yet the collection was chic with sleek body conscious silhouettes from leather to silk. The presentation also had great sex appeal with plunging necklines and sharp shoulders with metal accents and mesh knits. The lily prints as well as the jewelry were breathtakingly stunning and accented the collection beautifully adding a soft touch to the dark ensembles. I look forward to seeing Pilati and his next endeavor, but am excited to see what Hedi Slimane has in store for the house of YSL after being announced that he will be taking over.

Alexander McQueen // It's hard to believe that this is Sarah Burton's fourth season at the house of McQueen, but I can honestly say that no one else could have been the perfect choice. For the label's FW 12 season, Burton presented voluminous ensembles that were classic McQueen. Breathtakingly beautiful and incredibly intricate and dramatic. From ruffled capes, fur accents, to organza covered gowns, the collection was perfection with blacks, scarlets, pinks, and ivories. Burton always knows how to translate a fantasy on the runway and the wide visors and barbell shaped belts definitely added a futuristic touch to the romanticism of the presentation. Another job well done. View the full collection here.
