When I read that today was the anniversary of the creation of the fashion house of Yves Saint Laurent on 4 December 1961, I knew it would be a great time to post some of my favorite YSL photos.  It wasn’t until I logged in that I realized that my previous post was about his longtime friend and muse Betty Catroux.  Kismet.  

Photos from Vanity Fair, Hedi Slimane, Ivan Terestchenko and Christies

    What a creative genius he was. Recently watched the documentary ‘L’amour fou’ and how interesting it was to find out a bit more about this great man and his troubled soul. Great compilation of pictures! anastasia at decor is like butter

    Heather have you seen L’amour Fou? Every inch of YSL and his partner’s homes were divine. So much attention to detail, so many memories. It’s a very moving documentary-Run Don’t Walk.

    Love the blog as always.
