The world of Yves Saint Laurent

04/12/2011

Yves Saint Laurent apartment details at Rue Babylon
A very precious documentary from 1992 that tells a story of Yves Saint Laurent and gives a wonderful and intimate insight into the life of the designer and one of the most magnificent fashion houses in the world. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.








I would also like to mention a couple of books that you may find interesting. The first one, Yves Saint Laurent: a biography, is one of the most informative and fascinating tomes about Yves Saint Laurent and the world of fashion. The second one, Yves Saint Laurent, is one of the recent additions in my library. Although it contains stories and interviews, it is the photographs that are particularly special.

  4. I've been waiting for a spare moment the entire week to be able to watch this. It's the first thing I did when I arrived home earlier. Thank you so much for sharing the documentary. And for the books too. I find it hard sometimes to choose a book about a designer from so many written and having someone like you to recommend a title really makes a difference. :)
