Hedi Slimane keeping first YSL resort line for buyers

Yves Saint Laurent Resort 2012 Collection

Newly appointed Yves Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane will present his upcoming women’s resort line to selected buyers only.

Since it was announced back in March that Slimane would be returning to the label by replacing Stefano Pilati as creative director, fashionistas have been eager to catch a glimpse of his new creations for the house.

But it has been reported that Slimane is taking an exclusive approach to his presentations, with a spokesperson telling WWD this week Slimane’s “transitional” women’s cruise and spring menswear collections will only go on show to buyers.

Slimane won’t be keeping all his designs too closely guarded though, as the creator is set to make his first major impression as Yves Saint Laurent creative director with a catwalk show during Paris Fashion Week in September.
