I ♥ Yves Saint Laurent!

This fantabulous fashion find is so now. This Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche 2 piece silk set is so exquisite. The fabric is BEAUTIFUL and you can FEEL the quality of the silk. The trousers have an elastic waistline. I love the details...handstitched hem on the top, zippers on the sleeves, the narrowing of the sleeves at the wrist, the slit on the back of the top. Subtly sexy.

Personally, Yves Saint Laurent is one of my favorite designers. He gave women the trapeze dress, the Mondrian dress and le smoking suit. His first foray in fashion was when his mother took him to Paris for a meeting she arranged with Vogue Paris editor Michel de Brunhoff. Brunhoff later introduced Laurent to Christian Dior, where Laurent would not only work, but when Dior passed away in 1957, Laurent took over as chief designer. (It was Yves Saint Laurent's first collection for Dior that gave the world the trapeze dress.)

Yves Saint Laurent launched his own couture house in 1961 with the backing of Pierre Bergé. He led the fashion pack by being the first to open Ready-To-Wear (The Rive Gauche) boutiques in 1966. Menswear was added in 1974. His muses included Loulou de la Falaise and Catherine Deneuve. Laurent retired in 2002. He passed away in 2008.
