Yves Saint Laurent Dies at 71

Legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent died Sunday in Paris, France. He was 71.

According to his longtime friend and associate, Pierre Berge, Saint Laurent died Sunday evening following a long illness.

He was “unquestionably the greatest designer” from the 1950s to 2000, Valerie Steele, director of The Museum at FIT (New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology) tells USA Today. “Just as Chanel brought modernism into women’s fashion, you could say Yves Saint Laurent brought fashion up to a kind of contemporary life.”

“Most designers are incredibly lucky if they can contribute one thing to fashion,” Steele continues. “But he was like Picasso: He contributed to so many significant movements. It’s impossible to imagine contemporary fashion without this man.”

RIP YSL.

Truly a sad day. One of the greatest of all time and he will always be remembered as exactly that and so much more. His life deserves to be celebrated.

what a loss in the fashion world.

I just heard about this. I am so saddened by his death. I really love his work and respected him as a man. My very first fragrance was this really obscure whale-poo perfume. I’m not kidding, my mom had it since the early 90′s.

Quick Fact:
Whale poo is called ambergris and is grey and light enough to float on top of the water. Sometimes you find it on the beach. It can be used in the manufacture of perfume!

aw you made. good colognes !

I love his lipsticks..

RIP Mr Saint Laurent.

Thoughts and prayers to the Saint Laurent family

Another Great One has left

The sweetness of morning dew

Farewell, Yves.
Till the time we meet again.
