Yves Saint Laurent Menswear Autumn Winter 2011

They say God is in the details, and in this show, it was all about the details. Come fall, the Yves Saint Laurent man is going to be wearing classic tailoring with strange little details: buttons placed too close together, strangely small shoulders, and contrasting tones of deep, masculine jewel tones. I like it.

I love…

small shoulders, slim pants and big feet. A strange yet interesting discreet silhouette.

those contrasting tones of green.

a military coat with more buttons than you'd expect.

the black placket on that mustard yellow shirt. Slick.

buttons that are awkwardly close to each other.

I loathe…

a silhouette that looks much better on a woman than on a man.
