Bonjour, Yves

I need not explain the reasoning behind my absolute adoration of Yves Saint Laurent, however I hope these peeks into the life of the man himself, taken from a biography I'm currently reading, encourage you to share in my devotion.

From his days as the dauphin of Dior to his depression and ultimate isolation, Yves' life and work continue to permeate every aspect of fashion today.

I swiped my copy from a cruise ship a few months ago (clearly the warning label on the back cover did little to deter me...) but I highly recommend you go out and pick up a copy of this biography. It's resplendent with juicy fashion tidbits, not only about Yves, but also Kaiser Karl and Diana Vreeland among others.
