Since its establishment in the Sixties by the designer and Pierre Bergé, the haute couture house has redefined femininity, creating arguably the most famous (and sexiest) suit for women, "Le Smoking" Tuxedo, and innovative collections such as Pop Art, Ballets Russes, and Picasso. This retrospective book is the first to cover forty years of the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house and highlights the inventive character of the designer's work. More than one hundred and sixty of the best designs and accessories, all taken from the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Collection, are presented in photographs and numerous sketches by Yves Saint Laurent, published for the first time."--inside cover."@en ;
