PARIS — Hedi Slimane’s phone is likely to start ringing a lot more.
He may be more committed than ever to Dior Homme, having renewed in July his employment contract with the French house and expanded his responsibilities to men’s fragrance and cosmetics. But WWD has learned that Slimane, one of the most acclaimed fashion talents of his generation, is otherwise free to pursue women’s wear or any other design project he pleases, conceivably from furniture to automobiles.
Issa Rae stopped by WWD's NYC headquarters to talk about season two of "Insecure," which premieres this Sunday on HBO. Click link in bio for all the details. #wwdeye (📷: @jgreenery; Styled by @mayteallende)
