Hedi Slimane took to his personal (and verified) Twitter account at 1:52pm (U.S. time) to share his thoughts on the New York Times' key fashion critic Cathy Horyn's not-so-stunning review of his debut at Yves St. Laurent.
Some of Slimane's choice words for Horyn: "Miss Horyn is a schoolyard bully and also a little bit of a standup comedian ... I also often hear that her sense of style is seriously challenged, providing that she is meant to be an authority in the village. This is totally irrelevant, no one has ever asked for her to be an inspiration to others after all, and likely it would never happen anyway ... Her biggest achievement so far is a book about Bill Blass, that I haven’t read."
He continued: "It might be terrific, and I’ll be happy to recommend it, if it helps the sales ... In conclusion, as far as I'm concerned, she will never get a seat at Saint Laurent, but might get 2 for 1 at Dior. She should rejoice. I don't mind critics but they have to come from a fashion critic, not a publicist in disguise. I am quite mesmerized she did get away with it for so many years."
