Hedi Slimane, the new head at Yves Saint Laurent decided to change the name of the brand to St Laurent Paris, for the pret-a -porter collections. He may have his reasons, but I cannot say I like it. It sounds like a street name. There is St Laurent Paris and St Laurent Montreal. What will happen to YSL logo? Anyway, that's his problem.
I purchased my Yves St Laurent blazer in Amman, Jordan in a boutique near Amra Hotel, the year Yves St Laurent passed away. I was gazing at the bleu-marine beauty when the seller approached me and asked me whether I wanted to buy it. This is from his last collection, he said, and I will make you a good price. These were strong incentives, indeed. After so many years the blazer is still highly wearable, still elegant and gives me a lot of pleasure.
Conclusion: when you really feel the urge of buying something beautiful, don't resist.
