Sense of Repurpose: YSL’s New Vintage III Collection

“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again,” Dorothy Gale promises at the close of The Wizard of Oz, “I won’t look any further than my own backyard.” It’s a lovely sentiment, and one echoed by Stefano Pilati with New Vintage III, a brand-new, limited-edition capsule collection for Yves Saint Laurent—as with the other installments in the New Vintage series, Pilati has designed this line with unused fabrics from YSL’s storied archives. (And you thought sustainability couldn’t be chic.)

The line consists of just 180 numbered pieces, available only at YSL’s flagship stores in New York, Paris, and London. Options include a classic tailored blazer, a decidedly Mad Men-esque diamond-patterned skirt, and the sheer rose-colored blouse we’re currently obsessing over. Prices range from $750 to $2,990.
