Designer Spotlight: Saint Laurent

When it comes to luxury ready-to-wear or prêt-à-porter styles, we have Yves Saint Laurent to thank for. As the first couture house to introduce this concept in 1966, the French luxury fashion house founded by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé in 1961 has been a favourite for those who love luxury fashion that is synonymous with youth and freedom.

In 2012, the brand rebranded its ready-to-wear line to “Saint Laurent Paris” to reflect the modern and youthful direction of the brand, as well as restore the house to its essence while still respecting the original principles and ideals. The streamlined name would be “Saint Laurent Paris,” although the iconic “YSL” logo would remain for the makeup and accessories.
