The YSL Manifesto has already hit the streets in Paris, London, Milan, and Hong Kong, where it caused predictable frenzies. (Here's an account from a Hong Kong fan who got in a fight with a "crazy menopausal old lady" about her friends joining her in line.) And according to Yves Saint Laurent PR, it ought to land in New York any second now.
That's the word from Nitrolicious, who hears from the label that they'll be distributing their coveted tote bag from 10:30am to 11:30am outside the Standard Hotel near the High Line. Then they'll head to Brooklyn, where they'll be giving out the bags on the corner of Atlantic and Smith in Cobble Hill from 2pm to 3:30pm.
Nitro also has a second, competing list of locations from a reader, but it looks exactly like the list from last fall and include the Fashion Week tents, so we're a little skeptical of that one. In any case, the easiest way to keep track of the giveaway is via YSL's Twitter, which has been very accommodating about listing the locations as the hand-outs begin.
