Behold: Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent Branding Has Started to Arrive on the YSL Website

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

As expected, Hedi Slimane is extending his Saint Laurent branding all the way to the YSL website, with a full relaunch that will officially debut tomorrow. (For now, we're left with teaser shots like the one above.) The url for the site will remain the same, and it will still be e-commerce capable; however, the key difference is that it will only sell products designed by Slimane.

In addition, the site will also allow pre-ordering of the ready-to-wear and accessories from the cruise and spring seasons. While the rest of the plans are under wraps for now, WWD did do us the favor of describing what the Saint Laurent invites look like for this evening's show at Paris Fashion Week. Apparently, they're "sumptuous black booklets filled with pages of fractured animal spots," similar to what's happening on the site right now.
