“Fashions fade, style is eternal”
Yves Saint Laurent was one of the most influential fashion designers and couturiers of the 20th century. He was born in Algeria as a descendant of French emigrants. After moving to France, he learned his craft from none other than Christian Dior and took over the creative direction of the house after his death. His first collection was already a huge success and freed women's fashion from the wasp waist. Yves Saint Laurent was responsible for other groundbreaking trends over the decades: pantsuits for women and the use of jersey in the high-priced segment are associated with his name. Likewise, he was one of the first designers to use transparent fabrics in his designs. The iconic 1965 dresses inspired by the paintings of Piet Mondrian can also be traced back to Yves Saint Laurent. During his lifetime, Saint Laurent was fondly called a "revolutionary" of the fashion world.
Bags from the traditional French company Yves Saint Laurent usually catch the eye with their clear linens. In combination with shiny monogram details, the bags have their own elegant design language. That the bags are not traded at high prices for nothing is also due to the choice of materials. The bags of the label belong to the highest quality at all. Some variants also have a chevron called quilting on the outer leather, which takes up the first letter of the first name Yves beautifully and visualizes.
Over the years, many iconic Yves Saint Laurent bag models have been launched. Among the most popular are certainly the Chyc Ligne, the Sunset and the Kate bags, as well as the Cassandre range. The models differ in details and are offered in different sizes. The popular Yves Saint Laurent Classic Baby Duffle Bag represents a miniature version of a classic weekender. The bags in the Sac De Jour range are among the most elegant of all with their clear linens. Likewise, the Mombasa model is unique: the handles of the bags are usually made of real horn, have shiny fittings and have been offered in various designs over the years.
The Yves Saint Laurent show of the Spring collection for men 2023 took place in Morocco in the Agafay desert 30 kilometers outside Marrakech. Not far away, Yves Saint Laurent has lived in the Jardin Majorelle, which is still known today for its exceptional design. A visit is an absolute must should you be in the area, the building shines in a unique blue and is surrounded by ocher yellow details. The property is completed by a cactus garden with water basins. It is not for nothing that this place served as a retreat for Yves Saint Laurent. The set design is a collaboration created by artist Ed Devlin. A seemingly floating, glowing ring was made by the designer for the show and illuminated the stage.
