Of course, Twitter was blaze with conflicting reviews: While some adored Slimane's new direction, others thought it lacked an edge that the brand was in need of. Either way, it's clear that the French designer was influenced by his new home: Los Angeles. Although he's a Beverly Hills boy now, Slimane's spring '13 collection could easily be a blend of Sunset Boulevard and Topanga Canyon — especially with the addition of those wide-brim hats! We're thinking this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Slimane's Cali-infused duds. Take a peek at our picks for the crème de la crème from this morning's show — we can't wait to see which mag features those capes first!
