Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2013: Hedi Slimane’s Debut

3 Oct

Hedi Slimane debuted his first collection for Spring/Summer 2013 for the couture house formerly known as YSL. Judging by the looks on the runway there was some hits and some misses. Now if we’re judging by the fact the critics put their pens down half way through the show, then it was a total failure. But alas, it was his first show so I’ll go easy on him.

This collection was Kate Moss meets Carmen SanDiego meets Van Helsing.

There were some definite stand out pieces, pieces that have made YSL what it is today. I fell in love with the tie blouse and the leather cigarette pants. It definitely gave off a masuline look which I am loving right now. However, the hats were so big you could barely see the models faces.

Overall, I can understand why the critics felt the way they did. There was just too many trends fighting for attention with no room for them to stand alone. When Slimane took the simple and clean approach that is when his designs really shined. I won’t count him out just yet. This is a man who has an outstanding resume, the blessing from Pierre Berge, Saint Laurent’s former partner, and not to mention he has worked for YSL and Dior. However, he is going to have to come harder if he wants forgiveness for the name change.

Cruella would be proud.
