Stefano Pilati gave WWD a first look look at his 2011 resort collection for Yves Saint Laurent before it is unveiled during a press event today in New York at the French Consulate. “Resort started for the American market. And so, this is a sort of a mini-show in New York in a space that could breathe a bit of French history by itself. You know, a collaboration," Pilati said of the decision to present his cruise line in the U.S. Inspired by iconic pieces from the YSL archives, Pilati offers a twist on classic Saint Laurent cuts by adding bold details—looks that he hopes will translate into major sales come November.
