Saint Laurent Announces Hedi Slimane Exit. Again.

This marks the second time for the luxury house.

Hedi Slimane, creative director of French luxury house Saint Laurent, has reportedly announced his departure from the fashion house for a second time. According to the label’s parent company, the 47-year-old’s contract as creative and image director came to a close this past Thursday and will not be renewed after a “four-year mission, which has led to the complete repositioning of the brand.” On the exit, François-Henri Pinault (chairman and chief executive officer of Kering) said, “What Yves Saint Laurent has achieved over the past four years represents a unique chapter in the history of the house. I am very grateful to Hedi Slimane, and the whole Yves Saint Laurent team, for having set the path that the house has successfully embraced, and which will grant longevity to this legendary brand.”

Under the direction of Slimane, the brand has undergone a renaissance of sorts. Incorporating a sleek new campaign aesthetic, Slimane was known for his collaborations with a string of prominent musical muses such as Daft Punk, Marilyn Manson and most recently, Jane Birkin. For the time being, the frontrunner in the list of names expected to succeed Slimane is Belgian-Italian designer Anthony Vaccarello, who has been residing at Versus Versace. If he is appointed to the position, he will become only the fourth ready-to-wear designer at Saint Laurent. Stay tuned here for more developments on the story.
