Sometimes, you just have to stick with what works. Yves Saint Laurent recut some of its iconic pieces for Barneys New York in June (using leftover cotton drill fabric), and the collection promptly sold out in days. Designer Stefano Pilati is now doing new vintage, the remix, in larger quantities for holiday shopping season.
The YSL Edition New Vintage range will include styles from the archive and will be made from a several fabrics from company inventory, according to WWD. Styles will go out to stores in early December, and those worried about the environment can take heart that the new-vintage styles will reuse YSL leftovers.
So: will you buy new vintage this winter?
