Hedi Slimane‘s re-branding of Yves Saint Laurent has been the talk of the fashion world since the famed designer took over the creative reigns of the Parisian label in the spring of 2012, pushing a minimalist aesthetic – reflected in the simplified Saint Laurent moniker – that was recently recognized with an award from Wallpaper*. Following the label’s first foray into footwear earlier this season, Slimane and Saint Laurent now present a high-top rendition of this spring’s clean leather sneaker. Updating the low-top with an extended padded collar, the footwear boasts a tonal full grain leather upper with matching stitching and eyelets, waxed cotton laces, a classic rubber sole, and gold foil branding across the tongue. Right at home amongst the slim, streamlined silhouettes of this season’s collection, the 2013 spring/summer Leather High-Top Sneakers are now available from MR PORTER for $575 USD.
