Hedi Slimane the French born fashion designer debut his first collection for Yves Saint Laurent during Paris Fashion Week. The collection had great praise from many of the fashion industry elite.
Pierre Berge who has been a long term partner with YSL had said the collection was “sublime” and that he showed to the world that he followed in the footsteps of previous YSL designers and that “he respected the codes of Saint Laurent”
Alber Elbaz the creative director of Lanvin had also commended the designer stating that it was “It was very Hedi and it was very Saint Laurent.” Hedi Slimane’s collections have always delivered a very slick design, in this instance his collection was a fusion of contemporary silhouette and that of the seventies. It was evident that his inspiration was heavily dwelled on the archives of previous collections presented by Yves Saint Laurent.
Our note: This is a collection that is aimed purely on the end user which are YSL’s consumers. Hedi Slimane presented a look that is ready to wear although his collection is focused on the cut, fit and fabrication we feel that he had taken a safe route we would have loved to see collection that defies the norm but this may be what Yves Saint Laurent as a fashion house needs. Stability comes to our mind.
P.s. We know that companies not called Yves Saint Laurent but we’re not a MASSIVE FAN OF THE NEW name Saint Laurent bring back YSL.
