Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2013 first look!

Heidi Slimane is now Stefano Pilati's replacement as YSL's Creative Director. The brand's name has also changed from Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent. Something still a bit strange about that if I'm honest.

Anyway, his first womenswear pre-collection has been released on Net-A-Porter and I'm reasonably impressed. I hope the elegant ethic of the brand will maintain throughout Slimane's designs, although I am expecting to see a bit of a modern, fresh re-brand too. I think the first signs, of which, can be seen in this collection. Available to buy here: http://www.net-a-porter.com/Shop/Designers/Saint_Laurent_?pn=1&viewall=off
