Ain’t Laurent Without Yves

 

I have to say that this outfit does not really fit me. It is not my style.
First of all, although I love shoes, a pair of sneakers would not be my first choice.  But I like those that come out a bit of the ordinary and remain pretty like those Giuseppe Zanotti.

        

You are maybe wondering what my “Ain’t Laurent Without Yves” t-shirt is about ? It is a T-shirt created by the brand Reason in 2013, following Hedi Slimane’s decision, who after being appointed artistic director of the house Yves Saint Laurent, has decided to rename the brand under the name of Saint Laurent Paris, which amounts to withdrawing the founder of the mark’s name.

This parodic trend was controversial at the time. The brand even asked to withdraw the product from sale at the famous Parisian boutique, Colette, and following a contradiction, put an end to their relations.

Although the change of name, accompanied well the change brought by Hedi Slimane to the brand, personally, I find it regrettable to remove “Yves” on behalf of the brand. It is still the name of the founder, and represents Yves Saint Laurent, one of the greatest couturiers of all time.

Despite of this, I am very admiring the work provided by Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent, which in a way, gave a new breath to the brand.
