Yves Saint Laurent LogoThe fashion rumor mill is buzzing that Stefano Pilati may soon receive the boot from Yves Saint Laurent. The New York Post and Fashion Wire Daily both report that the creative director’s spring 2011 line will be his last for the brand.

Pilati succeeded Tom Ford several years ago, and his designs have been both lauded and despised. He’s also allegedly a party boy who’s notoriously difficult to work with. That might be easier to overlook if the fashions were flying off the shelves, but that’s not always the case.

Of course, if Pilati is on the out we wonder who might take the company’s reins. Riccardo Tisci’s name has been suggested in the past, so I suppose Givenchy’s main man is always a possibility. Olivier Theyskens is another alternative, although his dramatic aesthetics may not suit YSL’s more elegant and conservative vision.

It might be too early to start speculating, but if Pilati’s days are numbered who would you like to see designing for Yves Saint Laurent?
