Hedi Slimane Has Officially Left Saint Laurent
Saint Laurent has confirmedÂ Hedi Slimane’s exit from the brand. And no, this is not an April Fool’s joke.
Rumors first popped up in January, sinceÂ Hedi wouldn’t renew his contract. But this morning, Hediâ€™s departure was confirmed in a press release by the major fashion house, stating that, â€œat the end of a four-year mission, which has led to the complete repositioning of the brand, the Maison Yves Saint Laurent announces the departure of Hedi Slimane as its creative and image director.â€
HediÂ presented his finalÂ collection at Paris Fashion Week,Â a follow up to his runway show held at the Hollywood Palladium in L.A. (Feb 10). Unlike every other brand that showed its ready-to-wear rangeÂ during PFW,Â HediÂ showed his first couture collection â€” a total of 42 looks.
So, what’s next for Hedi? Good question.
AfterÂ dressing some of the biggest names in film and TV, the fashion world is basically his. From possiblyÂ taking over another fashion house toÂ focusing on his own photography projects, Hedi isn’t out of options.
So, what’s next for Saint Laurent? Also, a great question.
All we can do is wait to find out!
