(No Yves) St. Laurent, Paris Fashion Week 2012

Hedi Slimane is the new creative director for St. Laurent and he made his big debut at Paris Fashion Week 2012. He is behind the name change of the formerly known YSL and his direction for the brand is to embody ready to wear fashions. Despite the confirmed drama that Cathy Horyn, New York Times writer, was not invited, the show, as they say, "went on." However, I do not want to leave you into the dark if interested in this tidbit so here is what Cathy Horyn had to say:
I was not invited. Despite positive reviews of his early YSL and Dior collections, as well as a profile, Mr. Slimane objected bitterly to a review I wrote in 2004 — not about him but Raf Simons. Essentially I wrote that without Mr. Simons’s template of slim tailoring and street casting, there would not have been a Hedi Slimane — just as there would never have been a Raf Simons without Helmut Lang. Fashion develops a bit like a genetic line.

According to this collection, whom ever said mixing brown and black was a fashion no-no is a fashion liar. Nevertheless, here are Future Legallaire's favorite looks.
