Typically thorough summation in the New York Times Style section this weekend of Alexander Wang’s move to Balenciaga and what it all means (“An American in Paris, Again”). Much has been made both in this article and elsewhere of the fact that Wang lives in New York. “It was a coup for Alex and a coup for American fashion,” Diane von Furstenberg tells the Times. It’s also worth noting perhaps that Hedi Slimane, the French-born creative director of Saint Laurent, lives in L.A. and feels a deep enough attachment to his adopted country to insist that the design studio be based there. Adding Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton, you could argue that there are at least three Americans in Paris.
