They say 'imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"… well, then Hedi Slimane must be really flattered since his FW 2013||14 grunge collection for Saint Laurent has been used as an inspiration for a huge part of Zara's TRF line. Maybe less flattering is the fact that such a high end product like a Saint Laurent collection has made it just to be inspiring for the second, less expensive, line of Zara and not their main collection. Ouch, that might hurt.... even more since some journalists during the last PFW have written very severe reviews about Slimane's Saint Laurent collection, saying that his designs would be more fitting for a Topshop target. Zara might have taken these reviews as a clue.
