The Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2012 collection is ridden with commanding themes. Tailored suits and long belted dresses are essential for the high powered woman, and this is precisely who the line is directed towards. Slicked back buns made for the perfect no-nonsense match for the ensembles at the labels latest Paris Fashion Week display.
That Yves Saint Laurent was the instigator of the modern tuxedo suit for females should hardly be found as surprising. His pieces were practical throughout, and while he did pass away regretfully in 2008, the fashion conglomerate has remained dedicated to his vision. These Fall 2012 pieces speak to this very vision, seen within the array of office appropriate gloves, dark trench coats, high rise pants and tight leather crop jackets.
