According to new rumors and few Paris sources, Slimane is poised to take over the design helm at YSL, where he burst on to the fashion scene in the late Nineties with his modernist, androgynous men’s wear. Although he has never designed a women’s collection, Slimane has long enjoyed the support of YSL’s old guard, including the likes of Pierre Bergé, Catherine Deneuve and Betty Catroux.
- A source told the AFP “[Silmane] will become the new creative director at YSL,” and that “the contract has been signed by both parties.” According to the AFP, the appointment will be formalized during Paris Fashion Week, which starts Tuesday, February 28. -
So, we hope that this is true and can't wait to see him @ YSL!
