Not one but two designers have left their fashion house this season. Stefano Pilati at Yves Saint Laurent presented a dark almost raw income last collection. Yesterday's confirmed that he will be replaced by Hedi Slimane. No stranger to the fashion world. He worked until 2007 for Dior Homme, subsequently to devote to photography. "Slimanes exceptional talent and his knowledge of the spirit of Yves Saint Laurent promises a new chapter in the history of the fashion house" said Paul Deneve, director of Yves Saint Laurent.
Raf Simons also said goodbye. With tears in his eyes he received the standing ovation. He presented a wonderful collection with a fifties feel. It was serene, poetic and pure. Was this a nod to his next employer?
Spoken about Dior: the fashion press is still not stopped speculate about who will be the new creative director and Dior has nothing confirmed. However, Haider Ackermann would have received a bouquet of Dior. Are these the 'welcome to Dior' flowers or maybe 'sorry that we've asked you' flowers. It remains a mystery while I'm getting more curious. And you?
