Visible Influence: Skinny Everything

Hedi Slimane is the designer who slimmed down menswear. From 1996-2000, Slimane oversaw the men's collections at Yves Saint Laurent, where he began to work towards the skinny silhouette he'd become known for. His next gig as the creative director of Dior Homme is what got him noticed. He designed Dior Homme's 19cm and 21cm jeans, which fit in a considerably skinny way for the time. The rest of the clothes followed suit. Currently, he's known as the guy who rebranded Yves Saint Laurent to just "Saint Laurent Paris," bringing his fashion career full circle.
