hedi's work for dior homme was often praised as couture quality. the craftsmanship on some of those garments was astonishing, particularly the embellishments. i remember examining the "love wound" shirt which was a hand beaded blood splatter and being amazed by the intricate details.

i think he'll do just fine!

While I'm not thrilled with how Slimane is definitively stamping his own imprint on the House, I am looking forward to the rivalry between Raf Simons at Dior and Slimane at YSL which could yield rather exciting collections in Paris, almost like the KL and YSL rivalry revisited!

that's just a detail. doing couture is so much more than embellishment... I'm not saying he's not up for it but its a huge job. \\

some of the dior homme garments, as I remember them had poor quality.

i'm sure he's not going to be producing the actual garments, rather just designing them, which i'm sure he's fully capable of.

in any case, couture back at ysl would be a step forward not just for the house, but for the world of couture in general.

I really am digging the new logo....I mean for me it still screams luxurious, even mysterious (obviously cause I have not seen the clothes....yet). Like Christian Dior, I hope this house gets cleansed first before going into new territory.

I'm still not in favor of the changing the name. Mainly because Mr Saint-Laurent has now passed away, I feel like it's a kind of rejection of his legacy. But I do like the new logo. There's something very retro about it and couture of course, but that's obvious. However knowing Hedi, I'm sure the aesthetic will be much more modern than it seems.
Besides it's very common to say "Saint-Laurent" instead of "Yves Saint-Laurent", especially France. In english speaking countries people are more familiar with the full name because they tend to shorten it to "YSL". in France "Saint-Laurent" is the equivalent of "YSL".
Therefore, I don't think it will have a big impact on the general public, it's more a personal mattern for me and an issue for the ones who really care about fashion.

It would also be quite juicy and rather fun!

Regarding the new logotype, the use of Helvetica bold is

It's a beautiful font but it is also the brainless, go-to for any graphic designer looking for an easy way to achieve "modern, clean, simple".
From a design perspective, I think it is a bit of a sin to replace the masterpiece that is A.M. Cassandre's YSL logo with this tumblr-esque one.

I, for one, am happy they're replacing the original logo. For some reason, it always reminds me of the Young And The Restless logo..

uh? the original logo is the perfect trademark for the house and came from one of the greatest art deco artist out there, you can't just compare it with that young and restless logo...

Everything Hedi touches became helvetica, there's no surprise in it, so does with saint laurent paris logo. It's alright since he's not changing the YSL house logo as a whole

Everything is looking so forced since Hedi went to YSL.

Everything is being so over-analyzed since Hedi went to YSL. Although, he isn't helping the matter with all the gimmicky changes and PR releases.
