May 7th, 2013: What You Need to Know in 60 Seconds. The World of Saint Laurent.
Everybody knows fashion and drama go hand in hand. I’m going to assume you are somehow aware of the drama surrounding the Yves Saint Laurent transition to Saint Lauren Paris under (controversial) creative direction of Hedi Slimane. Because he had a row critics stand at his first show, his contentious relationship with the press shouldn’t come as a big surprise. And yet, in a recent article by The New York Times, he was labeled as an “artist,” “diva” and “the one true heir to the legacy of Saint Laurent.” This all points out how well the first collection is selling despite the rather unflattering reviews.
I find this display of human nature rather interesting. While I don’t particularly like the fact that Mr. Slimane is making this revered fashion house part of yet another reality show, I am drawn to the brand more than I have ever been. Would I wear the witchy black hats? Not in a million years. I am, however, delirious with excitement for the upcoming Ruelala sale today.
