Today, in 1961, a little film called Breakfast at Tiffany’s hit the big screen. Talk about eternal style…
Hedi Slimane proved he was up to filling the huge shoes left vacant by Stefano Pilati at the newly rebranded Saint Laurent. The whole collection was divine, but this is my favorite look. Bravo, Hedi, you nailed it.
