YSL: Hedi Slimane creates from Los Angeles

Jun 8, 2012

Indeed, Hedi Slimane is never where you expect him to be. The creative director of Yves Saint Laurent has not relocated to Paris following his appointment. This was confirmed Friday by the fashion house located on Avenue George V, whose head office and plant remain in Paris. The arrangement seems daunting, not only because of the distance between Paris and Los Angeles, but also because of the great responsibility that comes with being the new style guardian of the Parisian fashion house.

With this, is he looking to distance himself from Paris, to break with the ultra-Parisian air that continues to follow the Yves Saint Laurent woman? Will she now become a Californian rocker or, perhaps, skater? The suspense is enough to keep the blogosphere up at night.

If at the time, Texan Tom Ford crossed the Atlantic in order to fulfill his mission at Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci, the British Phoebe Philo accepted her position at Celine only on condition that the studio not set up its new office in London. Hedi Slimane, meanwhile, will be backed by a team assigned to his California studio.
