Another Article: CEO Francesca Bellettini on Saint Laurent in the Post-Hedi Slimane Era
interesting article kind of about what's to come. I say kind of because, like a typical head of a company, she doesn't say much. she won't really say anything about hedi, other than that he was a success and created the new 'codes' that they will work with going forward. rather ominously, she does say that vacarello will have lots of control and that things (including the permanent collection) will 'evolve' - stock up.
sounds like things that are really popular will stick around: sac du jour, tribute sandals, chelsea boots and leather jackets etc. but after reading that I'm not optimistic. given her position, and what she is therefore required to say, it's not a surprise that she doesn't give hedi more credit. but my god are they in trouble.
