Classiness and elegance with a modern touch impressed the audience at the Yves Saint Laurent spring 2012 collection presentations at the Paris Fashion Week. Luxurious yet fairly easy to wear, simple yet refined, the looks have drawn a lot of attention and with good reason. Select your favorite designs from the collection by taking a quick look throughout the collection.

Classy and balanced, well structured yet easily customizable, the looks presented on the Yves Saint Laurent runways at the Paris Fashion Week were followed closely by A-list celebs like  Kylie Minogue  who were anxious to see the style direction the brand has chosen for the spring 2012 season. As many have expected, elegant ensembles were the main focus in for the latest line. Flawless structural details, alluring tones and style variety were some of the strongest attributes that made the outfits stand out.

Designer Stefano Pilati took well defined structures and used them to create fabulous and immensely versatile pieces that immediately raised the bar in terms of elegance. Deep V necklines, oversized jackets, sexy jumpsuits, fitted skirts and contrasts through proportions are the main style trends and directions that the designer has imposed in the latest line. Hues such as forest green, rich purple and blue tones, fuschia, pink or gold tones add a luxurious touch to the fabulous styles presented.

The polished outfits were perfectly complemented by the accessories created by the brand. Gold-toned loafers, high sexy platforms, and trendy pumps attracted the most attention among those who were best able to see the collection in complete detail. Although prints are also included in the collection, the most prevalent and exciting options can be found in simpler and more intuitive combos and outfit styles.
