Stefano Pilati on the Rumors About His Firing: ‘It Affects Me’


Yves Saint Laurent designer Stefano Pilati has been rumored from time to time over the past few years to barely be hanging on to his job. The reports have flared up again over the past couple of weeks as Pilati readies to show his fall 2011 collection at Paris Fashion Week. "You know, it affects me," he tells Eric Wilson of the Times.

“I don’t let it go,” he said. “What is it about? I should be here, thinking about how beautiful my job is, and come to the office every day and work with colors and fabrics. But no, you have something that undermines you.”
