Hedi Slimane’s first Saint Laurent Paris SS 13 Collection has finally debuted. If there was a battle between this collection and Raf Simons’ Dior collection…I think Hedi Slimane won. While Raf Simons’ collection was good, Slimane’s was great.I am tired of the boho trend, but this collection was boho, urban cowgirl is the best way possible. The slim pantsuits and slim stilettos were very sexy. The flowy printed peasant dresses and fringed suede brought new meaning to the term the Wild Wild West. The bow and tassled collars with the giant hats made the women look like it was disco night at the saloon. It was great to see him move from menswear to womenswear. I can’t wait to see what he is going to show next season because I know it is going to be great. He totally exceeded all of my expectations.
To prove that, because of my cold, I have way too much time on my hands, I have decided to write in my iPad Notebook a little cheat sheet on the following fashion industry rumors. This is my way of keeping it all together. Since Galliano was fired from Dior a year ago, the fashion world has been going through a guessing game of which designer is going to which fashion house. This morning sees the rumors going on overdrive yet again.
