Yves Saint Laurent

Spring 11

The look This was classic YSL, taking in the trench coat, catsuit and tuxedo suit in black and white, mixed with the odd flash of colour via an orange blouse and rust-print 1940s tea dress.

Key pieces Black catsuits in a variety of incarnations. Best was the backless number that had heaps of sex appeal. On-the-knee skirts had slits topped with pockets to reveal a sliver of thigh while sheer blouses afforded a glimpse of skin.

Commercial appeal The house embraced its heritage to churn out updated classics that will undoubtedly sell to the top end of the market looking for investment pieces but, as a whole, this collection lacked new ideas.

Footwear and accessories Jewellery was kept to a minimum with most of the focus on neck ties. The best footwear was either spaghetti-strapped evening styles or rose gold heeled sandals.
