Just another accessory and another ad campaign to distract from the sorely under-designed clothes.

And he'll engrave the Saint Laurent Paris name into the gold like he has been doing, which makes it utterly foul and gaudy. No thanks!

Actually, it is. The one major plus to Hedi being at Saint Laurent is that he's raised the quality across the board. The clothes, as far as I can tell, are extremely well done, some of them, despite what we think of the designs, border on demi-couture.

I think it's great he's expanding into fine jewelry, it's been one of the stronger product rangers.

This is very true. The designs have not been revolutionary, but the quality has been raised across the board. YSL products have always been well done, but Hedi has improved on many of them in terms of the quality control and the materials used.

I would not say the quality is so high as I own some of the sparkly chelsea boots and the glitter is starting to wear off and I have not even worn them that much. We'll see how this turns out.

I can only imagine what the prices of these will be. The costume jewelry they sell is in the thousands, and that is just vermeil.

I guess that would happen with whomever chooses to work with a material like this. It's a stylistic choice to do glitter-y shoes, and I'm sure the overall construction of the shoe (unlike, for instance, that of Rick Owens' shoes) is good, but there is no way to avoid it being a rather delicate treatment.

Anyway, as far as the clothing is concerned, the quality at Saint Laurent has never been better than it is today. I have hardly seen as clean stitchwork on the most slippery of silks and more precise tailoring here, unless we were to compare with Tom Ford's or maybe Thom Browne's suiting (which come at an even higher price point as Hedi's Saint Laurent tuxedos).

This is about as exciting as a bill from your dentist's office.

It's not awful, but not brilliant either.

That is one of the most unremarkable jewellery lines I've ever seen.
