Sooo, it's official... The LEGENDARY house of Yves Saint Laurent, will be undergoing a massive change... starting with the name. I have always, completely LOVED Monsieur Yves for his previous accomplishments in fashion, and for how he has inspired LEGIONS of fans, all over the world... (READ OUR YSL REPORT, HERE)!
(Yves Saint Laurent)
Since earlier this year (March 2012), Stefano Pilati no longer designs for the brand; he's been replaced by Hedi Slimane, a former YSL alum.
Last year, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Slimane on the streets of New York (during Fashion Week), but never in a million years, would I imagine that he'd change the name of such an iconic, fashion label?!?! Although it doesn't sound too bad, the house will now be called Saint Laurent Paris (which could commonly be mistaken for a bridge label or secondary line). I guess, I'm more upset of the impending dis-association of the brand with Monsieur Yves' original vision, although the house says that it will still, continue to use the famous 'YSL' moniker/logo; the 'Y' will be dropped, and a 'P' will be added at the end.
In the future, we can expect to see SLP, instead of YSL... Women's Wear Daily has reported on the issue (read the full story here).
