Hedi Slimane to Design YSL in Los Angeles

Hedi Slimane Will Design Yves Saint Laurent From California



Unlike most creative directors at French fashion houses, Yves Saint Laurent's Hedi Slimane won't work in Paris. Instead, he'll design YSL from his current home base, Los Angeles.

YSL will keep its atelier and offices on Avenue George V in Paris open, and Slimane will do fittings for shows there. But the bulk of the creative work will be done in LA, where Slimane has lived since he left Dior Homme in 2007.

Slimane, who took over for former YSL creative director Stefano Pilati in March, isn't the only designer who lives and works in two different places. Phoebe Philo designs the French label Céline from London, and Pucci's Peter Dundas commutes from his apartment in Paris to his office in Florence, Italy, several times a week.
