Hedi Slimane Bans Press From First Two YSL Shows

Fashion Press Won't See Hedi Slimane's First Two YSL Collections

Only buyers are invited to see Hedi Slimane's first two collections for Yves Saint Laurent, meaning virtually no one — including press — will see his women's Resort 2013 and men's Spring 2013 clothing before they go on sale.

A spokeswoman for YSL confirmed the press blackout to WWD on Tuesday, explaining that Slimane wants to make his first major fashion statement for the house when he presents his women's Spring 2013 collection on the runway during Paris Fashion Week. The "transitional" Resort and men's Spring collections will be shown to buyers in late June or early July.

Slimane succeeded Stefano Pilati as creative director of Yves Saint Laurent in March. He had been the head menswear designer at Dior, but left in 2007 to pursue a career in photography. His new position at YSL marks a return to the house where his career started: After graduating from the Ecole du Louvre, Slimane was hired as a marketing assistant for YSL in 1997, then rose through the ranks before becoming designer of YSL Rive Gauche Homme.
