Paris Updates
Just in from Paris editor Timothy Hagy

PARIS, September 1 - Just as the first chill of autumn has come to town, change has proven itself always in fashion. The Hong Kong-based YGM Trading Limited, which bought Guy Laroche for 17 million Euros on June 25, has announced plans for a new headquarters and has appointed a new Artistic Director. The House just acquired a building at 35 rue François 1er, where the management, the design studio and the men's and women's boutiques will be located. Hervé L. Leroux, who was previously assistant to Karl Lagerfeld at Fendi and Chanel, has been named as Artistic Director.

Yves Saint Laurent
Hedi Slimane has been busy over the summer. He's set to début his first ever furniture designs - a project with Comme des Garçons - which features geometrically inspired chairs. His work is scheduled to be shown in London on September 10, and then he's off to Paris to unveil photography at a vernissage at the Galerie Almine Rech on September 11.

An astute Parisian might have recently glimpsed a fashion icon walking slowly, though ever stylishly, about town. Yves Saint Laurent has recently appeared at the John Lobb boutique on Boulevard Saint Germain in search of new footwear. Either driven in a Mercedes limousine, or else sharing the tiny front seat of Pierre Bergé's Smart Car, he's lost none of his good taste. Leaning on Bergé, his left arm loosely falling by his side, his increasing fragility is eclipsed by his inherent elegance and grace.
