It could be an April fool’s joke, but the facts are stubborn things. Today, the world media reported that the designer Hedi Slimane left the post of creative Director of Saint Laurent. Guide the fashion house has already confirmed that it is true.
I must say that the rumors that Eddie plans to leave the cushy job, go for a long time, but this time they are officially confirmed. Slimane’s contract expired today, and since agree on mutually beneficial terms of the new contract failed, Edie decided to leave the post. Thus, autumn-winter collection Saint Laurent Fashion house presented at a recent fashion Week became the latest to Slimane on this post.
Francois Henri-Pinault thanked the designer for his, albeit short, but cooperation. Place Slimane will not be empty – it will be replaced by Anthony Vakarel, which will prepare a collection spring-summer 2017 and will present it in September.
