    YSL YSL YSL YSL YSL((((((:

    ok, i admit; when my dear friend got me to talk about yves saint laurent; the only thing that i wanted to do was to rave about how much i love the ysl muse bag and how that was the FIRST designer who's bag i genuinely adore.

    it certainly doesnt help that i was seeing ms moss online carrying the signature bag and at that time; Kate Moss was certainly EVERTHING i wna be (cept for that cocaine incident of course;) i was only 14? 15? yer; and besides, cheesy as it may sound; i found that i'm loving the IT bag that everyone was carrying not because of the initials stamped on the bag but rather, i was amazed at how the designer have actually created such a beauty that is structured and yet girlish at the same time.

    of course! i got a little help from google and realised that yves saint laurent have actually led a much more colorful life than i've imagined.
    at 17; he was already working at the house of dior and shortly after, he was sent to serve int he French Army where he;s suffered from a nervous breakdown where he had to undergo psychiatric treatment.

    he was released from christian dior because of this and thus, he started YSL.
    there, he started mainstreaming the idea of wearing silhouettes and he arguably created the most famous tuxedo suit for women; le smoking.

    even till today, as seen in ysl s/s 08; we can see silhouettes which are inspired frm menswear;

    also; what may come into one;s mind when YSL is mentioned are the SHOES!

    remember the stacked heels that ysl started off which aldo and topshop and other high street label started getting "inspiration" from?

    YSL have got another of those super high heels which are so unbelievably sexy and dangerous to walk in and one of the fabbest pair ever made is the tribute pump!! i want one of those too!!!

    with the way things are going; i cant even make it down main street w/o checking myself into A&E. hahaha

    furthurmore, how can anyone not miss those gorgeous ysl ads starring supermodel, giselle bundchen?!

    that was a brillant campaign and the concept was fabbb!! with the streets of italy as backdrop for the gorgeous mostly black clothes!!

    let us all take a collective sigh~ haha

    yves saint laurent is certainly a fabulous designer who;s bounced back from the hardships in life and year after year, he;s created such beautiful collections!!

    wht;s there not to love abt YSL?!!
    let's go shopping for a downtown bag now! hahahah

    YSL is one of my favorite designers, because my personality agrees with his femininity meets masculinity.

    Gloria said...

    ugg! I would love YSL shoes...but the ankle strap totally makes me look bad. My calves' size are above average and i'm just average height so the strap makes me look shorter and my legs not as good :(

    Kat said...

    Oh great post, Pen!! I love YSL, the spring/summer collection is rather fabulous, I love the moody colours and the stars. YSL shoes and bags are just well..*sigh*!!
    And of course YSL's contribution to fashion history is great, I personally love the androgenous suits.

    Cee-Cee said...
