SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW: Last June, when Yves Saint Laurent recut some of its iconic styles in leftover cotton drill fabric for Barneys New York, the collection sold out in a matter of days. Now Stefano Pilati is doing an encore on a larger scale for holiday retailing. The YSL Edition New Vintage collection will comprise a numbered range of archival styles in various fabrics from the Paris firm’s inventory. Distribution will be through YSL flagships in Paris, London, Milan, New York and Hong Kong starting in early December, a YSL spokesman said. While hardly a standard eco collection, the “new vintage” project has elements of reuse and recycling that clearly resonates with consumers.
