about

A spectacular visual journey through 40 years of haute couture from one of the best-known and most trend-setting brands in fashion

Founded in 1962 by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé, the fashion house Yves Saint Laurent has for more than half a century been synonymous with excellence in modern and iconic style. From Yves Saint Laurent’s revolutionary and enduringly popular tuxedo suit for women, le smoking, to iconic art-inspired creations, from Mondrian dresses to precious Van Gogh embroidery and the famous Ballets Russes collection, the house’s haute couture line has been hugely influential in changing the way modern women dress. This definitive publication opens with a concise history of the house before exploring the collections themselves, organized chronologically and ending in 2002, the year that Yves Saint Laurent retired from the company he started. 
 
Each collection is introduced by a short text elucidating its influences and highlights and is illustrated with carefully curated catwalk images, each season styled as the designer intended and worn by the world’s top models. The book showcases hundreds of spectacular clothes, details, accessories, beauty looks, and set designs.
Suzy Menkes is a British journalist and fashion critic. Formerly the fashion editor for the International Herald Tribune, Menkes is now international editor for 21 international editions of Vogue online. Olivier Flaviano is director of the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris.
