the most intriguing show in Paris was definitely that of Hedi Slimane´s
first collection for Saint Laurent (previously Yves Saint Laurent
), hands down.
the change of name, the cathy horyn incident, blah blah blah.
there were mixed opinions of course. more bad than good.
to be honest though, i liked it. yes, it was not world breaking but i did not expect that (nor from any other designer) so the disappointment is little.
it was very dark kinda leaning to "bohemian gothic" already as i call it. the wide brimmed hat was definitely the key piece!
so i dug up my hat collection eventually.
not everyone is as lucky as Lady Gaga
(who was already seen with the clothes from the runway some days after the show) after all.
PS: the quest for finding an affordable wider brimmed hat is still not finished though. the wider the better!
PPS: will never get over the fact that Hedi was so brave to change a name of a house that has been established for ages already. nobody does such bravery anymore. maybe it´s a wrong move, maybe not, but still you gotta give the man some credits!
