Yves Saint Laurent Pre-Spring 2012

It sounds so weird now that it is only 'Saint Laurent'. But I disagree with the statement "Ain't Laurent without Yves" (it sounds cool, and hip, and etc etc for fashion bloggers tho, I understand). Yeah sure maybe Hedi Slimane is making a complete change with the brand, but that doesn't mean he is a bad designer (he brought the term 'skinny white boys' to international famous with Dior Homme and a heavy influence with Vogue Hommes Nippon (✿ ♥‿♥). Plus, I think menswear is harder to design - basically almost everything looks good on skinny girls - and he did an amazing job, I believe he could go on with his womenswear smoothly). In case somebody still bitter, take a look through the YSL archive and take a look back to all the recent collections by Hedi, you will see the resemblances as in fashion repeats itself. It's not quite THAT good, but it is good imo.

And you can see the immediately change in Raf's and Galliano's Dior, or in Marc's and Nicholas' Louis Vuitton, I think you can't say what Hedi did is 'cheap regular street style' (I saw some comments back there and got really confused). It's like you compare Holly Golightly (I know she's a Givenchy girl but in this case I'm refering to the 'glamour girl' term) to the cool chic like Freja Beha. 

Also I think the ad campaign of Saint Laurent with Freja Beha definitely made a remarkable defination for Hedi's aesthetic perspective, needless to say it's different than the Yves Saint Laurent of yesterday, like a 2.0 version of the YSL girl.

  1. I love the super tailored looks that Heidi is doing for Saint Laurent - so good, but even more, I'm really into Raf at Dior.

  3. Interesting very interesting. Yes he has done a wonderful job and oh yes designing for menswear is harder then womenswear in some ways.

  15. Menswear is getting bigger and I think that's a lot because of Heidi Slimane, among other big designers. I can't wait to see more!
