Hedi Slimane Exits Yves Saint Laurent

Influential fashion designer and photographer Hedi Slimane officially parted ways with Yves Saint Laurent on Thursday evening, ending an era marked by the rebranding of a legendary fashion house and the revitalization of “rock star chic” style. The move comes after persistent rumors that the mercurial creative director was set to resign, despite huge growth in the Saint Laurent brand, both financially and culturally.
