A Slimane Dress


A while ago, I learned that an acquaintance of mine was getting married. My husband knew her fiancé well and told me that Hedi Slimane was creating her wedding dress.

Huh? How on earth did she pull that off?

Hedi Slimane has been rumored to be looking into designing a women’s line, but to my knowledge, he’s strictly men’s wear.

So I alternated between perplexed and perplexed, until my husband told me he was joking. He’d seen an open copy of W nearby and pounced upon the first designer’s name he saw, hoping that it would be significant enough to make an impact on my delicate style constitution.

Mission accomplished.

But I do wonder what a Hedi Slimane wedding dress would look like.

He has a wicked sense of humor, your husband...
This could be the beginning of a comedy.

That is funny. Evil and funny. But I have to say, I was seriously impressed when I thought he knew about Slimane - and that he could speak of him knowledgably.

Your hubbo is diabolical.

I wonder the same thing—what a Hedi Slimane wedding gown would be like. Superb, I'd imagine.

That is soooo funny! I love it! Your post makes me laugh... I love Hedi Slimane! If he designed the wedding dress, we may need on diet before the wedding day though:)

Cute! I love that your husband wants to tease but, on some level, clearly wanted "in" on your knowledge of fashion.

Hi S--thanks for visiting! My husband is sneaky . . . and I do love it when I can have a good laugh at my own gullible self.
