Yves Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2010 Mens Shoes, Bags And Accessories
Leveraging on the 'Y' symbol now made synonymous with Yves Saint Laurent, Fall Winter 2010 season sees the brand introducing a new version of the iconic alphabet being incorporated into a full range of their leather goods. From single/double tour bracelets, wallets, travel pouches, belts, the new 'Y' icon has been seamlessly blend into the designs. I especially love the new version of the 'Y' symbol as a metal buckle (on belts and bracelets), which is both tasteful and clever.
The trainers are also worthy of mention, with contrasting textures of suede, haircalf and patent leather. Who can resist the deep burgundy red and bright blue versions, I am in love with the latter that has a touch of luxurious fur!
The signature Hamptons leather tote comes now in a khaki olive hue, keeping in line with Fall 2010 season's raging military influences.
YSL menswear may seem 'far fetch' (too androgynous for the regular male), but these accessories are understated, well designed and made for any savvy guy who appreciates the meaning of elegance.
(BTW, check out this clip featuring the new sneakers with some really cute male models and in Parisian streets!)
