YVES SAINT LAURENT CATWALK: The Complete Haute Couture Collections 1962-2002
Yves Saint Laurent is a hero. With his infamous trouser suits and black crocodile jackets, the press initially called his work a "Tour de force of bad taste,” but which he himself dubbed Libération. He dressed women for who they could be; his clothes liberated their bodies from conventions of propriety and tired notions of luxury. Saint Laurent chose instead to follow his own North Star, embracing contradiction and the multitudes of style that comes with a continual evolution of self. His designs held all of this inside them, somehow conferring Saint Laurent's bold swagger and free-thinking to its wearers. This book, a spectacular visual journey through 40 years of haute couture, is a testament to Saint Laurent's eternal vision of pushing culture forward and discovering new definitions of liberating beauty. In his own words, "Fashion fades, Style is eternal."
