hedi slimane will present saint laurent womenswear in two parts
Celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Hedi Slimane Diary, the Saint Laurent creative director will present womenswear at the LA's Palladium in February and during fashion week in Paris.
Saint Laurent has announced that Hedi Slimane will present a show at the legendary Palladium concert venue on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles on February 10 that will debut the fall/winter 16 menswear collection as well as womenswear "part 1." Part 2 will be presented during Paris Fashion Week on March 7, as expected.
Saint Laurent at the Palladium is a tribute to the music scene in LA and a celebration of the 10 year anniversary Hedi Slimane Diary, his photography project focusing on California's sound and style. The event was teased on Monday, when the house released two short videos of Kim And The Created and Ariel Pink, motion updates to Hedi's Diary photography format. These have since been followed up with shorts featuring LA-based punk outfit No Parents, as well as the sounds of Saint Laurent model Staz Lindes' musical venture, The Paranoyds.
A release from Saint Laurent highlights how Slimane's decision to locate his Saint Laurent studio in LA rather than Paris mirrors Yves' historic move to Marrakech, and has encouraged other high fashion projects to journey west. Hedi's show at the Palladium is sure to be the most rock and roll fashion ticket in town.
