Is Hedi Slimane Leaving Saint Laurent?

On the heels of last year’s high-profile designer exits, it seemed like 2016 was already off to a rocky start for the fashion world. According to The Daily, Hedi Slimane and Saint Laurent allegedly parted ways over the holiday break citing creative differences. The designer, who has controversially reinvented the storied house since his appointment in 2012 (see: dropping the Yves in Yves Saint Laurent), has garnered the brand huge financial success—not to mention putting Los Angeles on the fashion map when he insisted on working from SoCal. (He’s also just made waves with his new V Magazine cover collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld, a reunion of arguably 2 of the most famous designer-photographer multi-hyphenates the industry has ever known.) Thankfully the rumor has been denied by Saint Laurent’s PR team, putting our minds at ease. Here are a few of our favorite looks from his tenure thus far. Long live the grunge tiara.
