We don’t know exactly how Stefano Pilati felt when he was left out in the cold at the big designer-castling in the beginning of the year. We recall: Jil Sander detached Raf Simons at JIL SANDER, Simons went to DIOR following John Galliano who got fired. At YVES SAINT LAURENT (YSL) Pilati was replaced by Hedi Slimane who unceremoniously erazed YVES from the brand name. In the end everyone had a new job except for one. Stefano Pilati.
That must have left highly respected by us Pilati pretty annoyed. And then Yves Saint Laurent’s loverboy Pierre Bergésaid he was happy Pilati wasn’t designing for YSL anymore. Not very nice altogether.
It may be due to all this offence that Pilati confirmed himself as a designer at two labels at once: the Italian living in Paris is gonna move to Milan and start working as head of womenswear department for ERMENEGILDO ZEGNA from 1. January 2013 and as a creative director for womenswear-line of AGNONA. Mhh. Well, yeah.
That doesn’t really affect us. As if a jilted man would stroll down with two women in front of his ex.
Unfortunately both new brides are slightly worn-down and not nearly as attractive as the lady who dumped him. Can also be that we’re mistaken and both ZEGNA and AGNONA are superhot top-brides. We’ll see.
The good thing about the current fall/winter-weather is, that one is finally allowed to wear clothes from the current fall/winter-collections. For example this really beautiful, and surely also really warm jumper by the Danish designer HENRIK VIBSKOV.
Not so good about the current autumn/winter-weather is by the way: everything else.
Well, we do not want to complain. As long as we are wearing that jumper.
You can order the sweater for an absolutely okay price of 250,- Euro, for example here.
