Today is a sad day for the Saint Laurent Paris fan that I am! The news, after being a rumor for weeks, has become official this morning: Hedi Slimane is leaving the French Maison. An essential step into revamping Saint Laurent Paris was for sure the interior design of its stores around the world. The Maison stated in several interviews: “The concept and architecture, designed by Hedi, is based on a minimalist translation of the techniques and materials of the French Modernist movement”. Adaptable to each location and city, the monochrome palette of marble, black leather and silver was the perfect environment for Hedi Slimane’s collections that will be dearly missed.

P.S: since this news was released on April fools’ day, I am secretly hoping for a fashion hoax. Stay tuned!
