    Not happy about this at all. I adore Stefano Pilati. Significantly more than Slimane...

    Yeah, I don't read French.

    Has it been officially confirmed, or confirmed by journalists?

    It's quite a bittersweet moment, good for Hedi, but where the hell is Stefano gonna go???

    I'm worried about this. Hedi hasn't done womenswear, and Stefano has been turning wonderful collections for the house.

    Now that is an interesting bombshell. I am for sure going to miss Stefano, just wonder what kind of changes Hedi will bring to YSL. I can not wait to see.

    Add me to the non-Hedi believers camp. *

    I think Stefano has been delivering exciting collections recently for YSL. I'm more affected with this news than Raf leaving Jil Sander.

    I will surely miss Stefano's amazing and bright talent at YSL. :( But Hedi's arrival at the house is surely interesting.

    Hmmm.....I don't know if Slimane will do a great women's collection, but will look forward to the new YSL! Hope Pilati goes to a good place, perhaps add an edge to Kenzo or Nina Ricci?

    This is exactly why im so not excited (other than loving stefano's work at ysl, both his womenswear and mens collections). Hedi's vision was perfect in that time and place, but i'm so not looking forward his skinny-ess at ysl womenswear.

    I still won't believe this till someone from PPR confirms. this feels like when tisci had 'signed' a conctract with dior.

    People need to stop worrying until they actually see what Hedi produces. This is no different than all the naysayers that didn't believe in Raf when he took over Jil Sander with no prior experience with womenswear. Dior Homme is not YSL. Hedi is not going to turn it into a rock'n'roll label, like Raf did not turn Jil Sander into a teenage rebellious fashion house.

    I have to say that I'm kinda speechless :shock: :shock:
    Can't wait to see what Hedi brings to the YSL aesthetic but Stefano will be greatly missed.

    I think it's just natural for people to expect. *Of course, I will be glad if I'm proven wrong but there will be designers who will not necessarily follow the house's DNA. Maybe his absence for the past number of years will contribute to something new and I would be a supporter then. But for now, I'm staying on Stefano's side.

    What will Stefano do... That's the question that intrigues me more than Hedi taking over YSL.
