Designer Stefano Pilati presented an ultrachick and sultry collection at Yves Saint Laurent this fall. The show began with jackets, coats, and pants, done in leather and plenty of it. One particular version of a coat was low-belted and had a studded collar. Also seen in the collection was a short skirt, topped with a masculine jacket. Coats were seen with detailed cuts, like the square arch into the hem of a gray quilted coat. White shirts were added volume at the sleeves or the neck, full-cut pants were chopped off just below the knees. The collection as a whole was elegant but also consisted a sense of strength and toughness.
