Rumours that Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane would be leaving the fashion house surfaced earlier this year but were denied by holding company Kering. Today however, a statement from Kering's Chariman and CEO Francois-Henri Pinault claims otherwise.

"What Yves Saint Laurent has achieved over the past four years represents a unique history of the house," Pinault said. "I am very grateful to Hedi Slimane, and the whole Yves Saint Laurent team, for having set the path that the house has successfully embraced, and which will grant longevity to this legendary brand."

"I would like to thank Hedi Slimane very much for his vision in reforming such an iconic House such as Yves Saint Laurent. The direction that has been taken over the last four years represents an incredible foundation for the Brand to build on for its continuous success."

Slimane's successor has been widely rumoured to be none other than Versus Versace creative director Anthony Vaccarello. WWD reports news of his appointment could come as early as May so that he will take the helm for the SS17 collection which shows in October.

Rumours that Saint Laurent's creative director Hedi Slimane departed the fashion house over "creative differences" have been circulating and just won't go away! Now, WWD reports that talks with Slimane regarding his contract have yet to go anywhere...

Because of this, the fashion house has supposedly lined up Versus Versace's create director Antony Vaccarello as a potential replacement! Saint Laurent is said to have concluded "extensive talks" with Vaccarello but the label insisted it "doesn't comment on rumours."

Last week, a brand spokesperson told Vogue that there was no truth to Slimane leaving whatsoever. 

Since Slimane took over the helm from Stefano Pilati, Saint Laurent has gone from strength to strength, doubling in sales during his first two years at the fashion house to almost $800 million annually in 2014.
