As the revolving doors of fashion’s top jobs continues, anticipation is growing for one of the most hyped new appointments – Hedi Slimane’s upcoming reign at Yves Saint Laurent. Having already headed YSL’s menswear division from 1996 to 2000 as well as designing for Dior Homme between 2000-2007 – during which his immaculately tailored, slim fit clothes proved as much of a hit with fashion savvy women as Dior’s male clientele – fashion insiders are waiting for news of Slimane’s progress with bated breath.

Last week at the black tie opening of Denver Art Museum’s retrospective of Yves Saint Laurent’s career – a major fashion exhibition raising thestaged in Colorado’s capital– Pierre Berge, YSL co-founder and Saint Laurent’s long-time partner gave the first insight into Hedi’s appointment. “I am very, very happy today to have Hedi Slimane because he is a great fashion designer and he has a great talent, a huge talent," he told Fashionista. "I like him, he is a friend and he worked for Saint Laurent a long time ago and he’s a member of the family, of the YSL family. I’m very happy.”

Now That Hedi Slimane is a 'Member of the YSL Family', What Can We Expect From His First Collection?

So it seems Mr Slimane is settling in nicely – but what no firm indication of what we might see in his first collection – be it Resort 2013 or S/S 2013. Paula Reed, Grazia’s Style Director, had the following words of wisdom to help our crystal ball gazing:

“One of the most important codes of the house of Yves Saint Laurent is the tuxedo – and the tux is also a defining part of Hedi’s signature, so expect new takes on the YSL classic. I think we can also expect to see variations on minimalist, masculine tailoring. The reason the industry is so full of anticipation is because this appointment marks Hedi’s first foray into womenswear – of course  when he was doing Dior Homme there were always queues of women waiting to buy his men’s suits – but the jury is still out on whether he will be able to deliver a LBD with the same aplomb.”

So you read it here first ladies – minimalist, masculine tailoring, a new twist on the tuxedo and a new YSL happy family. Sounds like YSL is about to enter a new golden age.
