Yves Saint Laurent (1936 - 2008)

The Parisian designer imagined a contrasting fashion: a subversive elegance where masculine met with femininity, street-wear with couture and where chastity and sexiness encountered. Christian Dior's prodigious successor, designed visionary garments much inspired by art that he thoroughly collected with his partner, Pierre Bergé.
