Design Question, Will Hedi Slimane Make It?

I was very sceptical to the first, and the second collection that Hedi Slimane did for Saint Laurent.

The first was too simple in my opinion, but the second one just didn’t make any sense at all.

Today, when Nikola Formicetti posted  a picture on  on Tumblr  that Marilin Manson stars in Saint Laurent ads, I decided to have another look at Saint Laurent summer collection.

I have to admit that shoes are good.

























































I would say: they are just perfect.  The best shoe collection this spring.

They are just amazingly Yves Saint Laurant and Hedi Slimane at the same time.

I’m not not sure, but I think he’ll make it. He’ll build a very intresting and strong brand. And it won’t be a  mainstream one.

Quote of the Day,( about how to conquer the word)

While I’m living in Norway, sometimes I forget that if you give a girl the right shoes, she can conquer the world. Thanks, Garance for remainding me this, and as Norwegians say : “Jeg må skjerpe meg” ( “I must pull myself together”) and find some forgotten in a cabinet shoe box…

Even I’m more Betty Catroux’s type Yves Saint Laurent’s girl, I’ve always loved Loulou De La Falaise. It’s sad to read about her death today. A beautifull tribute by By Bernie Rothschild you can read here:

Today is such a beautiful autumn day in Oslo

and I feel happy walking in my shoes (they are from Prada Autum/Winter 2007),
