Handbags at dawn YSL and Dior

With two of the biggest fashion houses engaging new designers Paris was always going to be interesting.

Hedi Slimane for YSL paid tribute to the codes of Yves Saint Laurent and produced a beautiful but safe collection, not entirely well received in the industry.

Raf Simons for Dior, sort to break free from the past, with exciting new shapes and much more fluidity to the collection, which received rave reviews.





























We take our hats off to both designers, for making Paris such a memorable show.  We love the Saint Laurent magic and new direction for Dior.  Who is your favourite?
