Every Fashion Week, YSL gives out a manifesto in a limited-edition tote bag, and every Fashion Week an utter shitshow ensues. This year's booklet stars Daria Werbowy as photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. It also comes with a zippered wristlet designed by Stefano Pilati—but only for the first 2000 people, which should make the crowds that much more frenzied.
Look for the manifesto to hit the streets Tuesday, September 14. Usually you can bet on getting a copy near the IMG tents, but we'll keep you updated as reports on other locations roll in. (For good shopping karma for the rest of the year, do drop us a line if you see the handout in action.)
