YVES SAINT LAURENT insiders suggest there will be an official statement later today regarding rumours that Raf Simons is to take over at Yves Saint Laurent.
The International Herald Tribune's Suzy Menkes reported in her Jil Sander show review yesterday that Simons was set to replace Stefano Pilati at Yves Saint Laurent, sparking a rumour frenzy on Twitter.
"If Raf Simons ultimately takes over the helm at Yves Saint Laurent - as those familiar with the situation in Paris suggest - the designer will have found a sweet spot for his meticulous modernism," said Menkes. "Although the designer was traveling back to his native Belgium and could not be reached for comment on the subject of YSL, he certainly has earned an audition for that position."
This isn't the first time Pilati has been rumoured to be leaving the French fashion house, only last season a tweet from the Kenzo press office suggested Hedi Slimane was filling his role as creative director. Yves Saint Laurent quickly rubbished the rumours via Twitter.
"From YSL HQ in Paris... Pilati busy working on the next collection," it said in March. "All the rumors unfounded - he is here to stay."
