Early 2000s pantsuit by Yves Saint Laurent. The suit embodies everything that prompted critics to call Yves Saint Laurent a visionary... A silk blazer, fitted at the waist, with shoulder pads to add some extra drama, and matching flared pants. In one word, this suit equals power. Unworn, with tags.

Yves Saint Laurent started his own brand in 1962 with the help of his business associate and life partner Pierre Bergé. When Rimbaud said “Il faut être absolument moderne” (1873), YSL answered his call by constantly introducing new elements in his collections eg. women trousers, raincoats, etc. With collections like Mondriaan (1965), Le Smoking (1967) and Safari (1968), YSL combined his technical skills and traditional design expertise with contemporary trends. YSL was the designer who introduced younger generations to the world of couture. He is probably the most influential designer from the post war period and helped to shape the women of the 70’s and the 80’s.
