“In this life I regret only one thing that I did not invent jeans”. – Yves Saint Laurent
Anarchist and feminist of fashion, he’s dressed in tuxedos and women transparent blouses, came up with the trapeze dress and safari style, introduced the fashion turtleneck with a high neck and camouflage.
All my life battling with depression, suicidal and drug addiction, Yves Saint Laurent was the last of the galaxy of great artists who have turned Paris into the world capital of fashion. Modern designers just recycle its rich artistic heritage.
Today, the genius designer would have turned 77 years old.
