It’s been four weeks since Yves Saint Laurent announced the departure of creative director Stefano Pilati, although onstage last night at the French Institute Alliance Française, he certainly didn’t look like a man unhappy at being out of work. Pilati was there to chat with Pamela Golbin, curator of fashion and textiles at Paris’s Les Arts Décoratifs, in front of a sold-out audience for the second installment of FIAF’s annual spring Fashion Talks series. Speaking on a range of topics from his beginnings as a Nino Cerruti intern to his appointment at YSL, it’s the first time Pilati has spoken publicly after leaving the job, stating “I’m really happy”.
