Stefano Pilati at Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme Libre launch dinner in YSL paint splattered shoes

i have something called a 'regret list', which consists of a small handful of items which i passed the first time round but now totally regretting it. i don't usually do regrets or 'with hindsight', so it's really a small list. the louis vuitton monogramouflage keepall is on the list, and also the above paint splattered shoes from yves saint laurent spring summer 2008. stefano pilati, creative director at ysl, was seen with those shoes in new york a few days ago during the launch of their new fragrance: ysl l'homme libre.

i believe ballet dancer / 'black swan' actor benjamin millipied starred in this campaign. he was previously seen on the streets of new york filming scenes for the ad campaign.

i really really love the shoes. i remembered seeing the shoes at the boutiques, it was deliberately laceless and there was an elastic band on the sides to keep it fitted. especially loving that mr pilati kept his outfit simple but accessorised with the statement shoes.

  1. I was just thinking from which collection those shoes were from when I saw the photo from the party a couple of days ago! Now I remembered! I can only say I feel exactly the same way :-( I wasn't so keen on them then. If only!!! :-(

  4. YSL was so good at that time!!
    On my "regrets list", the blue YSL bomber jacket of the fall 2008 worn by Kanye west is on the TOP!
    Secondly, the women's blazer of the 2007's fall collection of balenciaga!

    So many regrets...
