[ Yves Saint Laurent ]
Saint Laurent is a French luxury fashion house founded in 1961 by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé. The brand was the first couture house to introduce the concept of luxury ready-to-wear with the label’s 1966 ‘Rive Gauche Collection’, representing a critical step in the modernisation of fashion and revolutionising the socio-cultural landscape. In recent years, the label has been known for its rock-indebted styling, with collections centered around menswear comprising of slim denim, trim suiting and cropped leather rider’s jackets. Since taking the over as a creative director in 2016, Anthony Vaccarello has intelligently expanded the Saint Laurent look, delivering thoughtful menswear that prods at the constraints initiated by its previous iteration.
