I must admit, I am enjoying the reign of Hedi Slimane at Maison Saint Laurent. I really, really do. His first collection left me overflowing with emotions and almost brought me to tears (of joy, of course, for beauty often has this effect on the sensitive fibres of my soul).
His latest campaign (as he shot a separate one for the website) made me stare at the photos of Kati Nescher thinking of how beautiful her eyes were, how fragile yet strong she looked on every picture and how well Slimane captured the spirit of Yves.
With all the madness and changes that have been happening in the fashion industry in 2012 I seem to have found my happy place, in a dream world of Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane. And I am grateful to him for that.
