PARIS — Since June 28, select retailers have been invited to discover Hedi Slimane’s first designs for Saint Laurent Paris — and the first feedback is resoundingly positive.
What’s more, those invited to showrooms at the Grand Palais in Paris to view the women’s resort, men’s spring 2013 and accessories collections encountered even more Slimane handiwork: According to one retail executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the hangers, chairs, racks and marble-topped steel tables were all by the exacting designer, who in March succeeded Stefano Pilati as creative director of the storied house. It is understood the decor will form the basis for fixtures in a new shop concept.
