I was reading recently an essay in the August Paris vogue about the Parisian girl . It is no secret that Europeans in general have a different (read : much chic-er)lifestyle from people of my side of the pond. After reading this article , I realized just how elegant and perfectly non-chalant this alleged Parisian the author writes about is. Wearing vintage Chanel , never really having combed hair , smoking while doing just about everything and of course , all that being done in her le smoking . For his first collection , Hedi Slimane seems to be going back to the roots of St -Laurent , showing pieces like in past collections from Yves’s time ( le smoking and making them more modern , catering more today’s modern woman . Emulating the Parisian woman is quite difficult task , but Hedi just made it somewhat easier .
