Pilati Is Out At YSL

-------

Over the weekend, rumors surfaced that Hedi Slimane might be headed back to Yves Saint Laurent and the brand’s current creative director, Stefano Pilati, might be out when his contract ends next month. YSL confirmed the departure of Pilati, who has been at the helm of the label since 2004, this morning. In a statement, YSL CEO Paul Deneve said, “We are all at Yves Saint Laurent grateful to Stefano for his important achievements in advancing the mission and success of this historic and treasured fashion house.” He will take his final bow at the YSL show in Paris on March 5 and “in the coming weeks, the maison will announce a new creative director.” Slimane, WWD reports, is still seen as the front-runner to take the reigns at the label.
