Hedi Slimane May Bring Couture Back to Saint Laurent Paris

Hedi Slimane Could Bring Haute Couture Back to Saint Laurent Paris

Hedi Slimane says that restarting the couture collection at Saint Laurent Paris — which hasn't been shown since the house's founder Yves Saint Laurent retired in 2002 — is within the realm of possibility.

"Haute couture is a legitimate subject for Yves Saint Laurent and could resume one day," Slimane said in an interview for the August issue of Vogue Paris. "The priority today is to revamp and redeploy the luxury ready-to-wear."

Slimane, who had never designed women's clothing before he created the Resort 2013 collection for Saint Laurent Paris, says he'll accomplish this redeployment through his vision of the Saint Laurent woman. "I approach this via a wardrobe codified to the extreme, almost ritualistic," he said.
