LONG LIVE YSL
If you’re as saddened as we are about the passing of fashion great Yves Saint Laurent, find comfort at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
A retrospective of the designer’s work features 145 accessorized creations that span an impressive 40-year career. We were struck by the timelessness of Saint Laurent’s designs, most of which wouldn’t be out of place on the current pages of Vogue: Mondrian cocktail dresses c. 1965, a satin Norman blouse c. 1962 and the original grain de poudre dress worn by Catherine Deneuve in Belle de jour (1967).
Adieu M. Saint Laurent, you will be missed.
