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.
