Yves Saint Laurent New Vintage II
This winter, Yves Saint Laurent introduces ‘New Vintage II’ in the footsteps of the original NOHARM brand, the second edition of an environmentally-conscious capsule collection designed to reclaim, recycle and sustain. Recycling unused fabrics from the YSL archive, and adapting them to his classic silhouettes, Creative Director Stefano Pilati marries feminine refinement with sustainability — a concept more relevant than ever in today’s universe.
Pilati traditionally employs fabric innovation as a method to create uniqueness in a garment. In this second ‘New Vintage’ collection he presents several iconic silhouettes using the aforementioned archive fabrics exclusively and evolves them through varied treatments and distinctive textile combinations.
‘New Vintage II’ will be available as of mid-December 2009 in limited, numbered editions at the YSL flagship boutiques in Paris, London and New York. Having debuted in June 2009, the first ‘New Vintage’ collection was sold exclusively at Barneys New York — an innovator in the movement towards socially and environmentally-responsible fashion — where it met great demand and immediate success.
