YSL: One of the greats has passed

Yves St. Laurent has passed away in Paris this week. He was one of the great French fashion designer and he was only 71 years of old. At 21 he was appointed designer of Christian Dior after Dior sudden passing. After be called to serve his native country of Algeria, he came back to find out he was replaced by another designer. With the right connections he was able to start his own couture house and that was the beginning of the famous YSL logo.

In memory of him, I decided to show you some of his 2001 Spring Couture collection.
