The biggest news to rock the fashion world this week is the very dramatic potential change in name of one of fashion’s biggest houses – Yves Saint Laurent, popularly known as YSL. The new creative director Hedi Slimane has announced that the iconic name will be no more come the Spring 2013 show in September this year.
Yves Saint Laurent will then be known as Saint Laurent Paris.
I’m not the most fashion savvy person out there, but even I am aware of the history behind the name of one of fashion’s most famous designers who came up in the House of Dior and was once the Head Designer in Dior before being fired. Reading the history of Yves Saint Laurent is interesting and pretty sensational 😀
But history aside, this change of name is really something quite big although I’m not quite sure that SLP has the same ring to it as YSL, does it? What say you?
