Lanvin delivers menswear greatest hits ahead of Hedi Slimane debut

The autumn-winter 2013 season of menswear shows came to a close on Sunday night at the Grand Palais in Paris with an eagerly awaited debut from Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent.

Respected for his work at Dior Homme, Slimane is the designer many in the industry consider responsible for the development of the skinny aesthetic that has dominated men’s fashion over the past decade. The Saint Laurent post is his first design role since he left Dior in 2007 to be a photographer.

At the end of the long catwalk, where speakers swung out, as if attached to a theme park ride, and bulbs flashed, power players of the fashion industry, including Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld and Nicola Formichetti, sat in the front row alongside François-Henri Pinault, head of PPR, which owns Saint Laurent, and his wife, the actor Salma Hayek.Read more
