French designer Yves Saint Laurent was a true visionary who pushed the boundaries to free women through fashion. From his Ready to Wear collections to the Le Smoking suit, he was ahead of his time and wanted women to find their confidence while looking elegant and comfortable at the same time.
He was known for drawing inspiration from different cultural interests beyond the borders of Europe like Morocco and using diverse models, when diversity was not a priority in the fashion industry. He loved parties and exploring Paris by night which inspired him to use gold and combine it with colors. Gold had a big role in everything he did, from his buttons, to his fabrics, as well as his jewelry to push femininity to its fullest expression.

We were fortunate enough to visit the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Paris to learn details about his life and career and view exquisite pieces from sparkly gowns to glittering jewelry. If you are in Paris or going to Paris, it is a must!
We always love having his pieces and are excited to share a 50 piece collection by Yves Saint Laurent which is now online and ready for you to shop.
