It’s official, Hedi Slimane is no longer the creative director of the House of Saint Laurent. Originally appointed creative director of the storied Parisian fashion house in 2012, Slimane’s contract expired Thursday. During his tenure, he rebranded the French label by notoriously removing “Yves” from the title and repositioned it to offer rockers (and wannabes) a go-to wardrobe via his high-end take on grunge-inspired collections. The news of his departure follows the staging of the Fall 2016 collection runway show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. His successor is yet to be announced, though speculations have been circulating that Anthony Vaccarello, who is currently the creative director of Versus Versace as well as his eponymous label, will take the position at the Kering-owned brand.
