Lately more and more designers keep quitting their high fashion territories to look for something else, maybe a less stressful life or just to look out for the next step.
After Raf Simons from Christian Dior and Alber Elbaz at Lanvin it is now Hedi Slimane who says goodbye after four years at Saint Laurent where he completely changed the direction of their former designs into a more rock’n’roll attitude which might have shocked some of the classic Saint Laurent clients but definitely made the brand younger and much talked about.
I have to say that I see my shopping with different eyes these days: More like an investment or maybe like holding onto something that might no longer be there soon. It is probably my deep love for everything vintage that makes me look at the last season, but all of a sudden it becomes something special. Prices might go up on VestiaireCollective. com because everybody wants to hold on to something or wants to get something urgently when it is most talked about…
IRMA selected her favorite accessories from Hedi Slimane’s last collection because we think that his bags, shoes and jewellery were most special. You might just grab your boyfriend’s xxl jacket, pair it with your silk slip dress and add a mini Saint Laurent bag to feel like one of Hedi’s girls.
