Yves of Destruction

| 1 Comment

YSL.jpgFascinating, if a bit long, profile/hagiography of the recently late Yves St. Laurent from the Times in 2000. The argument is that YSL made wearing pants for women acceptable, among other things; it’s an argument that perhaps I lack the necessary background to discuss intelligently.

Anyway, here’s the official obit (which seems to cover many of the same points); and Suzy Menkes interviewed about YSL. The Times also has a slideshow and an annotated selection of YouTube clips.

To the right, YSL’s smoking jacket as shot by Helmut Newton.
