Hedi Silmane Out at SLP?

After stirring things up earlier this year announcing that fashion house Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) would be changing its name to Saint Laurent Paris (SLP) for revamping and “branding purposes,” it now appears that it might be time for a change of scenery for the newly appointed creative director Hedi Slimane.

Slimane received less than great reviews for his first Saint Laurnet collcetion and he may now be forced to leave Los Angeles, where he lives and works as a photographer to return Paris, the brand’s headquarters.

“They’re only going to indulge him for one more season with this LA thing and if he doesn’t turn out a tremendous collection, they’re going to summon him back to Paris or end his contract,” predicted one fashion consultant.Saint Laurent Paris CEO Paul Deneve, however, recently said that Slimane — who YSL took a risk in hiring as he hadn’t worked for a major design house since leaving Dior in 2007 — was brought in for his “very clear vision for the house.”
