Stefano Pilati Speaks Out About His YSL Departure

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”.
