Paris Fashion Week: Saint Laurent AW13
Hedi Slimane continues his obsession with California girls for AW13 at Saint Laurent with a collection that was all 90’s grunge. The very referential collection lacked any direct connection to YSL’s Parisian chic. It appears to be a calculated move on behalf of Slimane to not stand in the shadow of Yves’ tremendously important legacy. 
Effectively, the YSL label changed the way women not only dressed but also in how fashion is consumed with his RTW Rive Gauche label. Something that is now a clearly a distant memory. Perhaps it’s Hedi’s way of rebelling against the fashion establishment who scrutinized his debut Saint Laurent collection. An elaborate and immensely costly way of giving us all the middle finger. It’s safe to say that the AW13 poses more questions than answers regarding the future of Saint Laurent and Slimane’s vision. #Saint Laurent
