About YVES SAINT LAURENT

Founded in 1961, Yves Saint Laurent is one of the greatest haute couture names of the late 20th century. It was the first couture house to launch the modern concept of luxury ready-to-wear pieces with its Rive Gauche collections for both men and women. This was a advancement toward making luxury labels accessible to a wider, fashion-conscious public and YSL collections today include women's and men's ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags, accessories and eyewear. Says the label's website, "They are designed for both modern women who have a keen sense of freedom and follow their instincts with assurance, captivating others with their elegance, as well as men who prefer a nonconformist look and assert the different facets of their personality in a modern and sensitive way."
