It’s a good thing we have zero qualms about venturing into the menswear department, because a capsule collection by Grimes isn’t really something we want to pass up — even if it is meant to be worn by dudes. The Montreal musician has collaborated with Saint Laurent Paris on a line of t-shirts inspired by YSL‘s iconic “Love” posters featuring her swirly, trippy drawings that look like precisely what we’d like to be wearing to her next show.
The red sole lawsuit between Christian Louboutin and Yves Saint Laurent has finally come to a definitive end after 18 months of court dates, appeals, and media trash talk.
Hedi Slimane and co. have just released “part one” of the campaign images for Saint Laurent‘s Spring 2013 collection, starring Aussie model Julia Nobis.
In the vein of The Row’s pill-covered $55,000 leather backpack collaboration with Damien Hirst, Los Angeles artist Desire Obtain Cherish series of luxury branded pills packs takes our addiction to fashion to a whole new level.
Last week, Women’s Wear Daily published several oddly-timed stories about Paris Fashion Week. One piece by Miles Socha compared Hedi Slimane‘s Saint Laurent debut to Raf Simons‘ Christian Dior ready-to-wear. The general verdict is that everyone loved Simons’ collection, while Slimane’s collection was well-reviewed by retailers, but not so much by critics like Cathy Horyn. Naturally, the crew at Saint Laurent Paris didn’t like the article, so CEO Paul Deneve sent in a letter to the editors at WWD.
If anything can blow all of the Hedi Slimane drama out of the water, it’s this twisted dispute over a multi-million dollar collection of Yves Saint Laurent‘s original sketches and writings. This has to be one of the greatest mysteries fashion has seen in a long time.
PPR chairman and CEO François-Henri Pinault has added his voice to the chorus of opinions surrounding Hedi Slimane‘s debut collection for Saint Laurent. As it turns out, he liked the show, but definitely did not like being pulled into the drama.
Can we get an “amen”?
In response to the less-than-flattering review that Cathy Horyn gave his first collection for Saint Laurent after she did not receive an invitation to the show, Hedi Slimane has dispatched a rambling, somewhat-accusatory (but mostly just confusing) open letter via his ALLCAPSALLTHETIME Twitter page.
Hedi Slimane‘s first advertisement for Saint Laurent in his new role at the French fashion house is here — and it’s got nary a stitch of clothing in it.
Let’s hope Hedi Slimane wasn’t planning on sending red-soled pumps down the Saint Laurent Paris runway next month!
When Hedi Slimane decided to change the name of the house of Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris, many people did not agree with what he was doing. We were among the critics ourselves. But Slimane has come out with a response that has made us rethink our original dismissal of his rebranding.
The times they are a-changin’ at Yves Saint Laurent. Newly-appointed creative director Hedi Slimane recently decided to rename the house Saint Laurent Paris, a change that those closest to the designer surprisingly welcomed. And it looks like Slimane’s first work for the label will be a hit as well.
The house of Yves Saint Laurent has been all over the news thanks to Hedi Slimane‘s controversial choice to change its name. Since the label is about to make some serious changes, we thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane with some videos of runway shows from when Yves himself was still at the brand.
Not everyone is upset about the changes going down at Yves Saint Laurent — Pierre Bergé is all about it.
When Fashionista published a post about Hedi Slimane dropping the Yves in Yves Saint Laurent, I didn’t want to believe it. Now WWD is confirming the rumor, and I’m heartbroken.
