PPR, the parent group of YSL, has not yet confirmed.

Slimane made his debut at YSL designing mesnwear in 1996 and left the house in 2001 to serve as the creative director for Dior Homme until 2007. After that, the praised designer left the fashion world to pursue photography.

The have been endless rumors of Pilati’s departure from YSL, and it should be noted that his contract ends next month without any word of it being renewed.
