Debut with a bang for Hedi Slimane at Yves Saint Laurent’s help, on the contrary, we should call him just as Saint Laurent, seeing as the new Creative Director has opted for a small change in the name of the House, for not doing more clean and precise reference to its founder. The fashion show Paris Fashion Week for spring-summer 2013 was the official debut of the designer who took the reins of the French fashion brand. Great expectation for the catwalk that began with the usual delay with which we have learned to live, we presented the new women of Saint Laurent. A woman strong, decisive, which does not allow replies. Just like Hedi Slimane.
Clear the references that will be made after this parade with the predecessor of Hedi Slimane: Stefano Pilati has left Yves Saint Laurent, for whom he worked for a long time, to engage in a new adventure as Creative Director of the brand Ermenegildo Zegna (even if the rumors of him perfectly as heir to the Empire Armani!).
The French fashion house has arrived now Hedi Slimane, who already has done much to discuss his decision to change the name from Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent. A firm decision and decided that was met. And you say, will be welcomed the new style that the designer has given to the French fashion house? Let’s see what he proposed in his first women’s line, valid for next spring-summer 2013.
Refined elegance mixed with rock and soul in some detail from cowboy or gaucho that will not go unnoticed: here’s what he thought Hedi Slimane for Yves Saint Laurent woman for next season, in a collection almost monochromatic, consisted of black garments, with a few touches of Brown that gives a boost to the proposed runway look.
The collection consists of beautiful evening dresses lightweight coats with skirts to the foot that widen towards the bottom while lives are marked by tone belts or in sharp contrast with the gold star. The black evening dresses are embellished with gold-colored notes that form a nice pattern on skirts and tops.
Between clothes elegant and impeccable, Hedi Slimane also finds room for “wild” solutions, such as trousers and lightweight coats with fringes or oversized hats that are reminiscent of the cowboy in the more desolate. No shortage of black leather pants (a point common to virtually all brands) as well as sweaters and shirts with V-necklines that are never overdone. When the top are not low-cut are accollatissimi, with bows to close the collar.
Beautiful also the shoes worn by the models, with sandals with killer heels and laces tied at the ankle, proposed in grey and black, with tapered or slightly squared-off tips.
