As news breaks of Hedi Slimane leaving the creative director post at Saint Laurent, we look back at his AW16 collection at Paris Fashion Week.
It's said he'd known of his departure for the last two seasons — his final show had a retrospective theme with no catwalk music at all. Instead, only the sound of Benedicte de Ginestous announcing each look that Saint Laurent had used in his shows — a poignant move for a label so intricately linked to the music scene.
The clothes were less grungy but still very clearly Slimane — Slimane with a hint of Saint Laurent. The looks were more polished, with models working a kind of glam glossy 80s party girl vibe.
See ALL the looks… And check out the 10 most memorable of Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent red carpet looks.
