Hedi Slimane is making his second exit from the creative helm of Saint Laurent.
Kering, parent of the mythic fashion houses, said the separation comes at the end of a “four-year mission, which has led to the complete repositioning of the brand.”
Sources said Slimane’s initial contract as Saint Laurent’s creative and image director expired on Thursday.
“What Yves Saint Laurent has achieved over the past four years represents a unique chapter in the history of the house,” François-Henri Pinault, chairman and chief executive officer of Kering, said in a joint statement with Saint Laurent. “I am very grateful to Hedi Slimane, and the whole Yves Saint Laurent team, for having set the path that the house has successfully embraced, and which will grant longevity to this legendary brand.”
