Hedi Returns To YSL


Rumors swirled last month that Hedi Slimane would succeed Stefano Pilati after his eight-year term as the creative director at Yves Saint Laurent and this morning, the label confirmed the earlier reports. Today, in a statement released by the house, Slimane, who left YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme 12 years ago to join Dior Homme, was officially announced as YSL’s new creative director. Slimane will have “total creative responsibility for the brand image and all its collections,” while he continues his work in photography. “As one of the most important French fashion houses, Yves Saint Laurent today possesses formidable potential, which I am confident will be successfully harnessed and revealed through the vision of Hedi Slimane,” says François-Henri Pinault, chairman and chief executive officer of YSL parent PPR, of the designer.

    I am glad about Heidi coming back. I’m sure he will bring a new twist and exciting clothes back to YSL. I am sure the ad campaigns will have a lot more meaning than what Stefano did. Heidi seems to have more common sense.
