London - The trigger has been pulled in regards to the status of Hedi Slimane’s role at Yves Saint Laurent as the Kering-held company confirmed the creative and image director’s departure in a joint-statement early this morning.
Slimane’s four-year tenure at the Maison of Yves Saint Laurent had officially come to an end yesterday as his contract had ended.
Since Slimane has taken up the helm at Yves Saint Laurent, he has transformed the brand, in part by renaming the fashion house as Saint Laurent, undertaking much of the commercial work by shooting adverts himself and redesigning its stores.
