    I think Hedi Slimane makes sense as a successor to Yves Saint Laurent - who else is doing that sort of mainstream chic/luxury fashion design at such a high level these days?

    Thought Berge's point about H&M/Zara was interesting (i.e. that's where the action is these days). Feel like the trend, at least among NYC yuppie women these days, is to exclusively shop for clothes at those kinds of "high street" stores and then focus big spending on status symbol accessories (e.g. Chanel bag or a SLP biker jacket).

    So good he bought them twice: Roberto Graham, 28, bought two pairs of boots - one for himself, the other for his girlfriend. 'Air Jordans are cool for teenagers but these are for people into fashion,' he said

    Their EU has had for a couple months at least.

    I'm waiting for a bunch of overdressed male instagrammers posting pictures with their whey.

    Seems to me that if he's upset about the decline of "real" luxury, haute couture, high design, etc. -- the worst offender is what Hedi Slimane is doing at SLP.

    Realize Hedi *just* started doing couture, but SLP is still mediocre-made products selling on hype and marketing. Basically repackaging Seattle grunge and Southern California rocker culture and selling it at super high prices.

    Looking for a Hender scheme white suede/pig skin cap and found a Hender scheme copy called "Heyday Design". Copy of a copy.

    I interpreted him differently as saying that old school luxury/haute couture is now dead and irrelevant and has evolved into the sort of accessible/mainstream covetable luxury like what SLP specializes in, targeted at "active and modern women", in competition with Dior, Lanvin, Celine, etc., none of whom are currently doing it with the same impact as SLP. I thought his point about hype/marketing was to contrast against designers who lack an individual vision or thesis, which Hedi Slimane clearly has even if we don't like it. Finally I'm not sure that at any level he is talking about high design - doesn't seem like that intellectual stuff plays much of a role in his conception of fashion.

    Bergé has been a Slimane fan for yrs, hell when TF has at YSL he said he preferred Slimane's shows. He's also a fucking asshole so who cares about his fogey opinion.
