'What Yves Saint Laurent has achieved over the past four years represents a unique chapter in the history of the House. I am very grateful to Hedi Slimane, and the whole Yves Saint Laurent team, for having set the path that the House has successfully embraced, and which will grant longevity to this legendary brand'.
In March 2012, Yves Saint Laurent officially stated that Slimane would replace Stefano Pilati as brand's creative director. And under the Slimane's governance YSL has become one of controlling conglomerate Kering's most powerful brands - the sales doubled in his first two years at the brand to almost $800 million annually in 2014.
Yesterday, during the Paris Men's Fashion Week (June 24-28, 2015), French designer Hedi Slimane presented his latest men's fashion collection for Saint Laurent fashion house. It is called 'Surf Sound' and is dedicated to 'contemporary Californian surf music culture'. The collection is really rainbow-like and fresh, full of embroideries and beading.
Youth - that's the key word of Hedi Slimane's Spring-Summer 2014 collection for 'Saint Laurent'.
The Saint Laurent woman is a stroppy girl who still smells of teen spirit with her teeny sequin dress, a jacket with big shoulders and sparkling silver ankle socks.
The garments are mixture of the 1970s and the mid-1990s by way of Los Angeles grunge. It's for the brave woman, who is self-confident and bold.
