Yves Saint Laurent. As the oh-so-clever YSL-inspired t-shirt states “Ain’t Laurent without Yves.” This week, Yves Saint Laurent, the biopic, premiered, giving Americans a peek into the life of one of the most revered French designers of our time (the film premiered in France earlier this year). His is the brilliant mind that gave us lingerie-inspired, lace-backed dresses, the sheer blouse and Le Smoking. And while we’re all familiar with Yves Saint Laurent, the fashion genius, we probably lack in knowledge of Yves Saint Laurent, the person. The film highlights his private life, long term relationship with Pierre Bergé, as well as his catapult to fame, showing us how Saint Laurent evolved to be an inspiration to many young designers, budding fashionistas, and, well, anyone with an interest in fashion (you could say that applies to us) – a fitting tribute to a legend and an icon, we think.
