Hedi Slimane Leaves Saint Laurent

According to WWD, Slimane’s initial contract as Saint Laurent’s creative and image director expired on Thursday. Parent company Kering didn’t name a successor or give a reason for the departure, but said it would soon announce a new creative structure. “What Yves Saint Laurent has achieved over the past four years represents a unique chapter in the history of the house,” François-Henri Pinault, chairman and chief executive officer of Kering, said in a joint statement with Saint Laurent. “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.”

Slimane’s exit delivers another shock to the French fashion scene, wracked late last year by the exit of Raf Simons from Dior and the ousting of Alber Elbaz from Lanvin.
