New Designer, New Name At YSL, And More Of Today’s Top Stories

-------

Hedi Slimane (pictured) is starting his new post with a bang. The new creative director of Yves Saint Laurent has announced plans to change the name of the French fashion house from Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris and a return to the label’s original branding. [WWD]

In other French fashion house news, Raf Simons is getting ready for his debut at Christian Dior. And with a new designer comes a new venue. Simons is on the lookout for a fresh place to show his first collection for the house on July 2 during Paris Couture. Rumor has it, he has his eyes on a vacant hotel near the Arc de Triomphe. [WWD]

Elton John lent his musical talents to Clear Channel and MediaLink on Tuesday night. The icon played a private gig for the world’s most high-powered “Mad Men” at the Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc, where a VIP bash was thrown as part of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. [Page Six]

With model Stephanie Seymour and industrialist/art collector/publisher of Interview Peter Brant as their parents, 15-year-old Harry Brant and his 18-year-old brother Peter Jr. have taken the throne as the new princes of New York City. On his ever-evolving style, Harry says, “I used to wear only overalls, Alaïa T-shirts, and my mom’s Manolo Blahnik loafers.” Not a bad getup, if you ask us. [NYT]
