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