^ you're acting as if the name was changed to "Hedi Saint Slimane" ?!
i think half of you that are upset over the name change forget that "Saint Laurent" was what the label was originally named so if anything it's reverting back to the essence of the house, not ruining the legacy like some of you imply.. besides he explained in the vogue interview that only the ready-to-wear will bare the new name, the company, perfume (and potential haute couture) will still be YSL...
a little trip down memory lane:

you can already see here how back then the ready to wear was "Saint Laurent" yet the eyewear had the "YSL" logo
