Even with Yves Saint Laurent’s passing this year, his namesake company and spirit for innovation lives on. YSL designer Stefano Pilato has created a “Manifesto” with photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and featuring Naomi Campbell in the Fall/Winter 2008 collection. And while we can all enjoy the sexy images of Naomi in our favorite magazines, over half a million people on the streets of Paris, New York, London, Milan, Tokyo and Hong Kong will actually receive a copy of the book. Even more coveted will surely be the limited edition cotton tote bag, designed by Pilati, which will be distributed with the Manifesto to the first 5,000 people in each city. A short behind-the-scenes film and the Manifesto images will debut exclusively on ysl.com on the same day.
