A tortured genius and one of most influential designers of the twentieth century-Yves Saint Laurent was responsible for revolutionising the way women dressedand viewed themselves. During a wildly creative career stretching from 1958 to2002 Saint Laurent established a reputation for accessible- flawlessly cut clothes.He became an overnight sensation in 1958- aged 21- when he showed his Trapezecollection- his first for the House of Christian Dior- following the masters death.Four years later- Saint Laurent opened his own couture house and within a fewseasons was hailed by Vogues Diana Vreeland as the pied piper of fashion.Viewed as a master colourist and admired for his choice of sultry fabrics-his great gift was creating lasting styles - described by Vogue as stockpiles ofessentials in times of famine - that flattered all shapes and sizes. As well asdesigning wardrobe classics like the Le Smoking tuxedo for women- the Safarijacket- the trench and the pea coat- and introducing trousers into haute couture-he also dressed international style icons such as Catherine Deneuve- MarellaAgnelli and Lauren Bacall. With his nose for the zeitgeist- Saint Laurent recognisedthe global power of street fashion and launched Rive Gauche- his ready-to-wearboutique line in 1966. Christened The Saint by Vogue- every element of his fashionempire- which included exhilarating couture collections- exquisite accessories andsought-after perfumes- was captured by Vogues writers and leading photographerslike Richard Avedon- David Bailey and Norman Parkinson....
