PARIS – Breaking his silence about the split with Dior Homme, designer Hedi Slimane said he walked away because he was unwilling to compromise his principles “and the idea I have about fashion.” BR>In fact, Slimane said he first contemplated leaving the plum men’s wear post last July, when his contract expired and talks ensued about launching a Dior-backed Hedi Slimane fashion house.
“I tried to make things work for about a year,” Slimane said in a lengthy text posted on his Web site Hedislimane.com over the weekend, only days after Dior announced he would be replaced by Kris Van Assche. “I always kept in mind the precedence of some designers I admire who were in a similar situation, and chose the other path.”
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)

For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess. "Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hardside," said the singer. #wwdeye #wwdfashion ( : @slovekinpics)
“Volumes and Graphic Art of the Nineties are the main inspirations of the new Aquilano.Rimondi SS 2018 collection,” said cocreative directors Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18
