Last week, word that Coco Chanel (the musical!) would be taking the stage in London had the fashion flock buzzing—and this week brings news of another chic name on the English theater circuit: Yves Saint Laurent.

Women’s Wear Daily reports that creative director Stefano Pilati will be designing the costumes for a production of Betrayal by Harold Pinter, showing this summer at the Comedy Theatre in London. 

What brought the storied fashion house on board this time around? We suspect it has something to do with the leading lady, Kristin Scott Thomas—a longtime wearer of YSL who made a front-row appearance at the brand’s Fall 2011 fashion show in March.

The show, an Olivier Award–winning play that first débuted in 1978, opens May 27 and runs through August 20.
