The news of Yves Saint Laurent evolving into Saint Laurent, announced months before Paris Fashion Week, had everyone eagerly anticipating the label’s debut under the direction of newly appointed Hedi Slimane. Sure, the name had been shortened but there was certainly no shortage of glamour and swagger. Oversized fedoras, floor sweeping skirts, glittery capes and le smoking tuxedos screamed 70s rock ‘n’ roll. We absolutely loved it and are dying to get our hands on one of those stunning hats by next spring.
