Before it hits the catwalk, YSL Spring/Summer 2011

By Laura Medina

Before the supermodels set foot on tomorrow's catwalk at YSL, here are the hottest picks from the Spring/Summer 2011, titled, "Manifesto."
What is the "Manifesto" for the hot weather?
It's Stefano Pilati's reaction against twentieth-century extreme masculinity by embracing female empowerment and feminism.
For this collection, he used the Twenties and the Thirties with a sultry color palette. Mr. Pilati said that during that time, women came into their own in arts and philosophy.
With the sporty and elegant jumpers, halters, and rainforest hues, Mr. Pilati has also mined the original Yves Saint Laurent's archive during his Seventies hey days.
Mr. Pilati is very aware how macho our world has become. He wants this collection to admire and celebrate feminine strength and power.
These are the sneak peeks of what might set foot on the runway tomorrow in Paris but the Beverly Hills store will have these outfits tomorrow.
