My first post after a lengthy break has to be the hype about the name change at the House of Yves Saint Lauent to Saint Laurent. I do not even know where to start with this. First off let me say that Hedi is perfect for Dior. Ok. Ok. That is off track. back to it..

Since the name change supposedly branded by Hedi Slimane has gotten a lot of backlash, I get it. People love to say Y, S AND END IT WITH L. Y S L. What many do not know is that the name SAINT LAURENT has already been branded by the house in the 70s and early early 80s. This line has already been. So. what is the issue. Hedi is merely giving the name a revival and giving the already branded Saint Laurent a rebirth.

SAINT LAURENT HAS ALREADY BEEN. LEAVE IT ALONE!

FACT IS IN THE BOOKS.

If this is what 2013 has to offer in the world of fashion. Then I may not be so upset that christmas is 6 months away. I am loving this color palette, the ever so youthful appearance in girls dressing in Overall Jumpers, Leggo like color blocking and layers that make more than sense to the no sense at all. This collection from Carven, resort 2013 is beyond remarkable. and beyond wearable. Grab that check book. Carven will carve its way into your bank account.

Those platform shoes will be an instant sell out!!  GORGEOUS

HEDI SLIMANE is changing the name of Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris

HEDI SLIMANE is changing the name of Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris as part of his makeover for the label. Slimane took over from Stefano Pilati as the fashion house’s new creative director in March this year.

READ HEDI SLIMANE’S LIFE STORY

The new name is expected to be introduced in the coming months and should be implemented by the time Slimane’s debut spring/summer 2013 collection lands in stores, WWD reports. The designer will use the same font and nomenclature that the label’s eponymous founder first used when he launched his ready-to-wear line in 1966, then called Saint Laurent River Gauche.

A spokesperson for the label told WWD that Slimane will use the house’s “original branding” in order to restore “the house to its truth, purity and essence – and taking it into a new era”, while “respecting the original principles and ideals”. The brand’s logo will also remain the same.

Slimane’s debut pre spring/summer 2013 collection will be shown to a small group of buyers imminently, while his first catwalk show will be unveiled during Paris Fashion Week – which starts on September 25 and finishes October 3.

Louis Vuitton to Unveil Kusama Collaboration.

PARIS — When Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama first met Marc Jacobs, receiving him at her Tokyo studio in 2006, she presented the designer with a Louis Vuitton Ellipse bag, whose monogram canvas she had painted over with dots, the defining motif of her long career. “That’s so beautiful, look at that,” Jacobs exclaimed, twirling her handiwork for the camera of Loïc Prigent, who captured the encounter in his 2007 documentary “Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton.” Six years later, Kusama’s dots are on back on Vuitton leather goods — and this time on a global scale. On July 10, two days ahead of a major Kusama retrospective bowing at the Whitney Museum in New York, Vuitton will unveil a line of clothes and accessories done in collaboration with the artist. Ranging from trenchcoats and silk pajamas to a pendant necklace and wristwatch, the collection is due in Vuitton’s 461 stores in the days that follow the opening, with a second wave of products — hinged on monogram leather goods festooned with Kusama’s tentaclelike “nerves” motif — due out in October. Vuitton will also herald the collaboration via its windows — without any merchandise in sight. “In a fascinating way, the monogram canvas is as obsessional as Yayoi’s dots,” Yves Carcelle, Vuitton’s president and chief executive officer, mused during an exclusive interview to discuss the venture. He noted that the repetitive design, with the LV initials interspersed with stylized flowers, first debuted on trunks in 1896. Carcelle took pains to portray Vuitton’s latest artistic collaboration as a cultural initiative that will help animate its boutiques and burnish the brand, rather than a calculated effort to boost revenues. “It’s not to put products on shelves,” he stressed. The executive allowed that such ventures “tend to be a commercial success because of the strength of the artist and the strength of Vuitton. But the whole concept doesn’t start from a commercial point of view.”
