Curated.Works: Farewell Hedi! A Tribute to Hedi Slimane’s YSL Era Part 1

On April 1st, Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) released a statement – Hedi Slimane has exited the fashion house.

YSL-1

Hedi took over the creative director position in 2012 and since then Saint Laurent has become one of hottest brands in the fashion world. From 2012 to 2016, he successfully created a new identity for the brand by adding the rock & roll element to the collections.

March 7, 2016 was the day he ended his YSL era on a high note. The 80’s inspired F/W 2016 collection was a tribute to Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent and every look was memorable.

I of course did not reject this offer and below is the final result!
