Hedi Slimane left Dior Homme in 2007 and ever since concentrated on his photography career. He left when Dior Homme had become a highly successful line for the Dior House and people were hoping for him to return into fashion eventually.
Now according to WWD, sources are saying that just that might happen very soon. Apparently Slimane is about to take over th helm at Yves Saint Laurent, currently headed by designer Stefano Pilati.
We know the fashion world would highly welcome the move. Hopefully we can confirm the rumor very soon.
