When I have heard these news, I have thought that it was a joke (as it was the April fools day) however it has turned out to be true.
On the first of April, 2016 Hedi Slimane, the creative director of the Saint Laurent fashion house, has left the post, but rumors that he leaves the post have appeared in last year. French Fashion house have reported about it, but it haven’t specified the reasons of departure of the designer. Still it isn’t known who will replace him on this post. Slimane worked in brand from 1997 to 2000. Then he has gone to the house of Dior, where took a position of the art director of the menswear line. In 2012 Slimane has returned to Saint Laurent for four years.
Slimane has revived brand in the form in which it was conceived by the founder. Sometimes provocatively, and most often — in a hooligan way, but the designer created clothes which for certain would be pleasant by Yves Saint Laurent. And ,exactly, thanks to him, the house was renamed into Saint Laurent.
Well, I hope that the following creative director won’t break the ideas of so known Fashion house .-MS
