Pilati Planning Special Event For YSL Men’s

Stefano Pilati will forgo the runway in January and unveil a new format for his next Yves Saint Laurent men's wear collection.

PARIS — Stefano Pilati will forgo the runway in January and unveil a new format for his next Yves Saint Laurent men’s wear collection.

The designer plans to host an event Jan. 16, followed by a private dinner, on the eve of men’s fashion week here, which runs through Jan. 20.

A YSL spokesman said the change is not a cost-cutting measure, but rather Pilati’s wish to find a new way to communicate his men’s wear message. Particulars about the event are still being defined, and it will be followed by two days of press appointments, the spokesman added.
