If you happen to find yourself in Dallas between the dates of July 31 and September 6, we already have an event that we think you should attend - The Light & Sie gallery (129 Leslie Street, 214.745.2255 - Tuesdays through Saturdays, noon to 5pm) is hosting a group exhibition called Sehnsucht (translated loosely from German, you get "longing" or "aspiration") including photography from Vanessa Beecroft and Jeremy Kost (of RoidRage fame and Fashionista Fashion Week backstage coverage), alongside Hedi Slimane. The works are meant to investigate the notion of beauty in contemporary art, and how it's approached by artists working in a variety of mediums. We won't be in Dallas on July 31, but if you are, we urge you to go. And if you do, can you please ask Hedi about Dior Homme? Thanks.
Confirmed: Hedi Slimane In at YSL
Finally there's one rumor we can stop worrying about. We received an official press release early today from YSL and PPR, confirming that Hedi Slimane is officially back at YSL: Yves Saint Laurent and PPR announce today the appointment of Hedi Slimane as Creative Director of the maison Yves Saint Laurent. Slimane will assume total creative responsibility for the brand image and all its collections. In parallel with this new position, he will continue to pursue his career in photography.
