Hedi Slimane Out at Saint Laurent, Kanye West In on Spotify

Plus, Kanye West releases the work-in-progress The Life of Pablo for streaming and download.

Granger, David
Ousted from Esquire, he reflects back on a career in men’s fashion and publishing.

Hadid, Zaha
Iconic Pritzer Prize-winning architect, known for her undulating designs and skyline-shifting structures, died on March 30 at 65. Her most iconic buildings endure.

Hercules
The Spanish men’s fashion magazine turns ten. And Bruce Weber shot the cover. Bien hecho, chicos.

Lululemon
In today’s wishful thinking of the day, Lululemon’s corporate Twitter implies Beyoncé may have drawn inspiration from the activewear line for her new Ivy Park collection. And then the BeyHive sends Lulu running for the hills.

Moss, Kate
Leaves Storm Models, the agency to which she’s been attached since she was discovered at 14.

Slimane, Hedi
Having a rollercoaster of a week. First, he casts not-so-retired model Cara Delevingne in the campaign for his latest Saint Laurent collection; now, the man responsible for dropping the “Yves” from the Saint Laurent name is exiting the brand entirely. Word in the market is Anthony Vaccarello has been tapped to succeed him.

Vortex, Polar
It’s coming. Again. New York, brace yourself.

West, Kanye
Taking a break from live-editing The Life of Pablo to release it for sale and streaming — including on Tidal competitors like Spotify. He’s clear that this doesn’t mean it’s done, though.
