"Nowadays every baby seems born with a social manifesto in its mouth much bigger than itself.” - Oscar Wilde

It's obviously the Manifesto season...YSL last Fall...then Vivienne Westwood's Opus...and now, Yves Saint Laurent again. Come on, be honest, don't you feel like you should knock up a little agenda of your own just so as not to be left out?

YSL's latest version is smaller than Westwood's, weighing in at a sylph-like 24 pages, and features Kate Moss (also sylph-like) wearing pieces from the Spring/Summer collection whilst leaning against the doors of the entrance to the Fondation Pierre Bergé / Yves Saint Laurent in Paris...I won't go on, you've all seen the ads by this point.

You may have snagged a copy in London or Milan on Saturday...or in Tokyo yesterday...or you may be getting ready to try and get your hands on one in New York or Paris this coming Wednesday. If not, here is a preview of the behind-the-scenes video which should be available on YSL's website sometime today.

    i think your quote is very appropriate.
    not being a huge ysl fan might be the reason, but i find this a snore.
    and their use of "manifesto" is so overly grandiose.
    i also think i'm suffering from moss overload. she's beautiful, she's cool, but using her almost feels akin to a customer relying on a label to give them fashion credibility.

    "Manifesto" seems pretentious, but then again, people will believe what they are told. I like the imagery; very moody.
