Hedi Slimane Leaves Saint Laurent

47-year-old Tunisian/French photographer and fashion designer Hedi Slimane has left Saint Laurent after four years of being the brand's creative director.
As you may know, Saint Laurent has been my favorite fashion house and Hedi Slimane is my favorite designer. The news were pretty sad to me, like to a lot of people, but I am eagerly waiting what's coming next.

Slimane took Yves Saint Laurent to another level. He made it look modern, glamorous and rock 'n' roll. His collections were very inspired by music and different eras of time, like the 70's and 80's. What we will remember from Slimane's time at Saint Laurent is the feel of luxury, skinny scarfs, leather ankle boots, glam rock vibes and the YSL muses, for example Cara Delevingne, Julia Nobis, Agyness Deyn, Julia Cumming and Saskia de Brauw.

To appreciate Hedi Slimane's amazing era at Saint Laurent Paris, I have chosen some of my favorite Saint Laurent moments between years 2012-2016.
