The collection created by Stefano Pilati for Autumn/ Winter 2010/ 2011 looked like it had been inspired by religious motives though the designer himself denied this fact. But everyone who saw the range at Paris Fashion Week would tell that sober caped black forms, wimplelike head coverings, starched white cotton, hoods, and heavy chain pendants – all gave a nunlike impression.
The oufits were unusual for a catwalk show. High white dog collar on a suit, the yoked white blouse with full sleeves, the prim and modest mid-calf dresses looked like being typical for a Catholic convent. Even when a sheer black dress appeared it came with underwear formed as a cruciform bodysuit.
Platic covers put over some of the garments were intended for protection. Stefani Pilati explained:
It’s about protection. And partly, an homage to YSL and the rigorous tailleur.”
And the angel-like figures dangling on the gold chains wear inspired by silhouettes of Saint Laurent fashion photos Pilati had cut out of seventies magazines.
The collection as a whole looked good and some of the outfits would look great even in the office. Shoes were perfect and featured extremely high heels and platforms.
I loved the green sunglasses one of the models was wearing but I will never dare to don those myself.
