Saint Laurent creative director, Hedi Slimane relocated the house's design team to Los Angeles several years ago, and tonight he's taking it a step further. The brand announced last month that it would show Part I of its Fall 2016 collection at the Palladium in Los Angeles on February 10th - the day before the New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016 womenswear shows begin.
See highlights from the collection below and continue to ponder the rumors of Slimane's impending departure, especially considering the following excerpt from WWD: "Sitting front and center at Saint Laurent’s fall show, Kering chairman and chief executive François-Henri Pinault tempered rumors of Hedi Slimane’s departure by shrugging, 'We’re discussing, we have till the end of March, no rush. Tonight is about celebrating the brand, celebrating Hedi, celebrating L.A., the music, all that. Nothing else.'"
