Yves Saint Laurent: Icons of Fashion Design & Photography
An fantastic number of Yves Saint Laurent’s designs, beautifully captured by the leading fashion photographers of the 20th century
Yves Saint Laurent: Icons of Fashion Design & Photography is a ravishing homage to the uncrowned king of high fashion. At the start published in 1988, the book traces the success of Saint Laurent’s haute couture and able-to-wear designs from 1962 to 1988 during the lens of the world’s leading fashion photographers, including Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, William Klein, and more. Inside, 135 photographs document Saint Laurent’s groundbreaking designs worn by probably the most beautiful women of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s: Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Mounia, and Veruschka. Saint Laurent was once equipped with an infallible instinct for reading the aesthetic signs of the times, and this enabled him to have a profound effect on fashion. With an introduction by Marguerite Duras, this classic volume documents Saint Laurent’s ever-evolving artistry and the combined efforts of the world’s most talented fashion photographers, and is as beautiful and rewarding as one in all Saint Laurent’s creations.
