Goodbye Mr. Saint Laurent …

A page has just been turned: the last figure of the twentieth century couture, Yves Saint Laurent, has died at age 71. The emotion is great, as is the fashion today to this man. Engineering shy, Uninhibited provocative, visionary, eternal lover of women, Yves Mathieu Saint Laurent forever embody a certain elegance, dedicated to sublimate a liberated woman…

Pierre Bergé – very close associate and friend of Yves Saint Laurent – do not hesitate to declare that Saint Laurent is the “symbol of the second part of the twentieth century.” Point of abuse in this statement, as the work of fashion designer revolutionized our concept of fashion.

Thus it is particularly the ready-to-wear, he was the first to launch. Its objective was to modernize the seam to offer women seductive trappings, yet adapted to their new status of women in power. For this, it draws heavily on the male wardrobe: between scandals and flashes of genius, he turned clothes as the Sahara and the tuxedo, which became the spearhead of his style, offering women a new dimension, a will special borrows freedom.

Behind the tall figure a vaulted nothing, mischievous smile and this exacerbated reserve when found in public, hid an extraordinary man. A native of Oran, he flies to adolescence to France where his talent is quickly recognized. It takes Dior succession to his death and created four years later (in 1961) a house that is fast becoming one of the jewels of French elegance … Its success will never fade.

Yves Saint Laurent gave power to women, and they have not stopped to thank him. International stars, royalty, world elegant, stylish women … all focused and still bear the YSL. Admirer of Picasso, decorated with the Legion of Honour, posing nude for her scent and elevating haute couture to the rank of art, Yves Saint Laurent was a man of passions. Having dedicated his life to women, he will forever live in our minds, and yet lasting mark tomorrow’s fashion…
