THE RETURN OF SLIMANE!!!
Exit Stefano Pilati and enter Hedi Slimane. Yes, the rumors are true that he will assume the the position as creative director for Yves Saint Laurent. He left the fashion house as soon as Tom Ford came into the picture. Hedi became one of the biggest names in the fashion industry by influencing men to wear his super tight suits, trouser, coats, and jackets. After his tenure at Dior Homme, he decided to pursue a career in photography. As a passionate artist, he excelled. PPR head Francois Henri Pinault and his team made the right decision of rehiring the shy and awkward designer. Will we see slim fitting clothes at YSL? The archives of the label is like a house of gold... full of treasure. Once again, he will be onstage and prove to the fashion industry that he can take the task of taking the brand into a new realm. He will be in-charge of designing collections for men and women. His peers in the industry are waiting upon his return. I know he will be welcomed with open arms. The acceptance will be like Phoebe Philo's big comeback to the industry for the house of Celine. It is about time.
