Rumours| The Future of Fashion. Karl L., Stefano P. at YSL, Alber Elbaz and Olivier Theyskens

    What is going to happen to the future of fashion? Rumour has been circulating that Stefano Pilati, the current creative director and designer of the Parisian fashion House, YSL maybe stepping down from his position after 10 years. This is no news since we have been hearing about this forever. His monochromatic palettes which included navy blue, black (of course) and white is what people call his "signature." But are we getting bored? YSL ready-to-wear never really stood out to me significantly in both women and men collection. As a fan of minimalism, this is quite odd to me.
    Hedi Slimane, Raf Simon and Christophe Decarnin has been approached as Pilati's replacement but has turn them down as quoted by Saint Laurent's partner Pierre Bergé:

    "He'd rather see it killed and the legacy remain untouchable, observed only from afar through exhibitions, films, auctions, etc. As his foundation still controls the YSL archives, he can and does make life difficult for whomever wants a closer look at the house's DNA. Furthermore, while the CEO of YSL is an excellent businesswoman, she is, as they say, a ball-breaker. So the job isn't a walk in the park, to say the least."

    So so so...
    We have also heard that Karl Largerfeld will be retiring from his position at Chanel after 2012 - His 30th Anniversary. Which Lanvin Elber Albaz will take over and Olivier Theyskens who was previously with Nina Ricci and currently with Theory will be the next successor of Lanvin. Rumours are rumours, true or not, We still wonder if these changes are for the better? Does this mean Lanvin will change or will we ever see Baptiste Giabiconi and Freja Beha Erichsen ever again on the campaign of Chanel?
