Come on Baby Light My Fire: S/S 13 Saint Laurent

I don't know about you guys, but when Hedi Slimane took over as design head for Yves Saint Laurent and began making his tweaks to the brand, I was raising some eyebrows.

And then I'm sure that you, along with the rest of the world, freaked out a little when he announced the drop of the Y from the ever iconic YSL logo. What the.....?

I know, I know-- BREATHE! It may have been terrifying at the time since we all fear change, but after Hedi's Spring 2013 presentation I was thoroughly impressed with the cool, slick look that he decked the models in, from the wide brim hats to the gold plated jackets. Similar to what Stefano Pilati did with his final YSL collection, but there's such a smoky coolness about the design, kind of what I'd expect to find backstage at a 1960s The Doors show at Whiskey A-Go-Go.

Such a theme is prevalent in Saint Laurent's ad campaigns for the collection, starring the beautiful Julia Nobis and Edie Campbell. All I can say is, Hedi, you are SO vindicated in my mind!

  2. This is a good look; I'm LOVING the minimalist-meets-western look that were on the runways for spring. This editorial is everything!

      I do too! I'm just hoping when I try to style a scarf bolero I won't look like the Partridge Family!
