Hedi Slimane at Yves Saint Laurent

Stefano Pilati out and Hedi Slimane in at YSL.

We’ve all heard the rumors and speculation – now here’s the confirmation: Hedi Slimane is the new creative director of Yves Saint Laurent. Replacing Stefano Pilati after his eight year reign, Slimane will oversee both the men’s and women’s collections.

His YSL comeback marks the end of a twelve year hiatus after previously working his magic at YSL Rive Gauche Homme until his departure in 2000. Being the aesthetic genius that he is along with his cult status photography, we can’t wait to see what strings he’ll pull at YSL.
