Grimes x YSL


If you've been paying attention to fashion news this past year, you probably know that iconic French fashion house Yves Saint Laurent has been overhauled by designer and photographer Hedi Slimane. Slimane changed the house's official name to Saint Laurent Paris. At first, I admit, the change was a mega shock, but now that Hedi Slimane has shown several collections for the house since then, all is well and what was formerly YSL has never been deemed cooler. 


As if the brand, which now has an overlying sense of rock and roll radness, could get any more coveted, they have hired the one and only Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) to design artwork for a limited run of T-shirts. Grimes has won over just about everyone in the last year or so, music and fashion critics alike, and so has Hedi Slimane, so could there even be a better pairing? Although I thought the common image of a YSL T-shirt was entirely gone, several of the T-shirt designs drawn by Claire include the original logo. Regardless of the brand's official name, these shirts are pretty perfect. If I were to purchase a graphic tee other than a band's tour shirt,  I'd for sure get myself one of these. - Maddie
