Are the garments in stores yet? There's one near me, so I may go this weekend or next week when I have time just to see them in person. I'll post a review if/when I do.

It's interesting to compare this Pilati's first YSL season post Tom Ford in 2005. He also did a small capsule, but it was mostly YSL classics tweaked with the relaxed/romantic Pilati vibe. It worked really well, IMHO, and set the stage for what he'd do next.
The interesting thing about it was YSL was still relatively new to menswear history, so there really was no such thing as "YSL Classics" in menswear, but Pilati managed to blend his own ideas with the DNA of the brand's heritage in such a way that it "felt" very much like what a YSL menswear collection should look like.
I think I would have been more excited to see something like that this time, a fusing of Hedi/YSL and stage-setting for what we'd see next. Again, it's far too early, but still I don't really know what I"m supposed to be seeing here, though I did with that first Pilati season.
