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.

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.

No one knows when Hedi will return to fashion scene as a creative director, but one thing for sure – we will always remember the collections he has created for Yves Saint Laurent.  At Draw A Dot., I have invited 15 illustrators to pay tribute to this glorious era.

This is Part 1.

Curated.Works: Accessorize Me – Saint Laurent S/S 2014

So far, you have seen the beautiful accessories from Dior and Altuzarra and I hope they are on your most wanted list as well. For this week, we are going to take a look at Saint Laurent.

The YSL studded handbag is a very edgy accessory piece, and if you have been following the YSL runway shows under the creative direction of Hedi Slimane, you should know the brand is going for a more rock and roll attitude. The illustrated girl by Natalia sits nicely on top of the bag and I personally think she is full of attitude.
