Saint Laurent’s Sales Has Risen Under The Creative Direction Of Hedi Slimane
Hedi Slimane took a position at Saint Laurent three years ago and since becoming creative director in 2012, sales has risen 37% in the third quarter of 2015, which is also the strongest quarter to date for the retail.
Sales were also strong in the Kering-owned brand stores – up 32% there. Saint Laurent‘s wholesale sales were up 17% as well.
Personally, I think Hedi Slimane is very influential. He’s doing a great job at the house. I think he has an open lane to dominate luxury fashion. Alexander Wang exited Balenciaga (Balenciaga has tapped Demna Gvasalia, the founder of the Paris fashion label Vêtements to succeed Alexander Wang) and Raf Simons is leaving Dior.
