Designer
Yves Saint Laurent
Catherine Deneuve once said of her friend Yves Saint Laurent that he designs for women
who lead double lives.[1] Indeed, the themes of contrast and duality were pervasive in the
late designers legendary body of work: Saint Laurent was the first to bring gritty streetwear
(leather jackets, for instance) into the somber and magisterial couture salon. He appropriated
mens tuxedos and fedoras and put them on women. He glorified proletarian garments (the
pea coat and the peasant blouse) in luxurious fabrics. And he debuted African and Asian
models on what had been predominantly white runways. In constantly playing double Dutch
with his divergent instincts, he created a new fashion template for the ultra-posh woman with
a subversive streak.
But the word paradox also sums up the designer himself, whose conflicted and contrarian
nature made him one of fashions most ambivalent figureseven as he became one of its
most feted. Described alternately as a very strong character who knows exactly what he
wants[2] (by Susan Train, writing in Vogue) and as having been born with a nervous
breakdown[3] (by his longtime partner, Pierre Berg), Yves Saint Laurent built a
groundbreaking fashion empire, only to feel so trapped by its ritualistic demands that he sank
into depression and self-abuse.
Few designers have approached the colossal stature of Saint Laurent. His sprawling, 45-year
career can be seen as a capsule version of the modern fashion industryfrom its beginnings
in couture to the eventual dominance of ready-to-wear to the rise of global conglomerates
through branding and licensing. Saint Laurent not only witnessed these changes, he helped
instigate them, with the assistance of Berg.

Yves was first with everything and has inspired practically everybody,[4] Vogue wrote
upon his retirement in 2002. He took over the house of Christian Dior in 1957, succeeding the
legend himself at the vulnerable age of 21. It was a time when politics and society began
edging toward a more youthful, antiestablishment, and pop sensibilitythe days of Elvis, the
Beats, and James Dean. Saint Laurent sampled these countercultural flavors in his designs for
Dior. In the 1960s and 1970s, he feasted on the aesthetics of political protest movements,
working-class uniforms, the gangster underworld, and the gay demimonde. He provoked both
outrage and adorationand, along the way, spurred fashions transformation from the
preserve of titled ladies to the inalienable right of the masses. As one commentator noted, If
Chanel liberated women, Yves liberated fashion.[5]
Yves Saint Laurent grew up in Oran, Algeria, the son of wealthy and prominent French
parents. A sensitive and artistic schoolboy who loved drawing and the theater, he was
mercilessly taunted by the macho sons of the other French colonists. I didnt have what it
took to be a boy,[6] he later reflected. At eighteen, he moved to Paris to study couture, and
soon found a job assisting Christian Dior.
The meek, bespectacled Saint Laurent started by decorating Diors shop but quickly moved
on to designing accessories and sketching couture ideas. One of his earliest looks, a black
gown with a long white sash, was immortalized in Richard Avedons 1955 photograph
Dovima with Elephants. He was so precocious that within two years, his mentor confided to
Mme Saint Laurent that her son was the one wholl succeed me.[7] Months after his
prediction, Dior died of a heart attack, and Yves was named his successor.
The fashion press received the Dauphin of Dior on the salons balcony as if they were
crowning a new king. But within a few seasons, the grandes dames who frequented the
housewho once even boycotted one of Diors looks because it was named the Jean-Paul
Sartrebecame livid at his successors looser shapes and impertinent styles. The final straw
was Saint Laurents Beat collection, inspired by the art students who hung about the Left
Bank jazz clubs. Alarmed, the business heads of the house arranged for him to be conscripted
into the army, and he soon found himself in the barracks back in Algeria. After nineteen days,
he suffered a breakdown and was transferred to Val-de-Grce, a nightmarish psychiatric
hospital in Paris where he was forcibly injected with sedatives and given electroshock
therapy. The ordeal turned the shy and fragile Saint Laurent into a frightening wraith, and
served as a prelude to his later drug abuse and emotional agony.

Its as though he has a layer of skin missing. Hes very sensitive to whatever is going on and
feels things very, very deeply,[8] Susan Train once said. Saint Laurent acquired that
protective layer of skin in the form of Pierre Berg, his ferociously loyal companion, whom
he had met before his military service. It was Berg who finally extricated him from Val-de-
Grce. When Saint Laurent came home to find that he had been supplanted at Dior by Marc
Bohan, Berg blunted this fresh trauma by springing into action. He tended to Saint Laurents
daily needs with single-minded devotion, while quickly assembling the elementsa salon
space, an investorfor their own couture house.
Yves Saint Laurent opened for business in 1962. Fashion editors packed into the salon to see
what this upstart would unveiland over the next several years would be treated to a dazzling
parade of ingenuity, wit, and transgression. The brightest and freshest he has ever done,[9]
crowed The New York Times of his 1965 Mondrian-inspired shift dresses, which were a feat
of engineering that allowed the fabric to hang as flat as the artists canvases while still
conforming to the curves of the body. It was quite a look,[10] declared the same paper of
his landmark 1967 gangster-inspired le smoking trouser suit. Later, it was a joke[11]after
he presented a sheer black chiffon dress with the models breasts clearly visible beneath. And
a tour de force of bad taste[12] when, in 1971, he showed a collection of forties-inspired
palazzo pantsuits and platform sandals that evoked the days of the Nazi Occupation. These
looks have long since become canonical, accepted as groundbreaking and visionary for their
time.
Sensing that ready-to-wearand not couturewas the future of fashion, Saint Laurent
opened his Rive Gauche prt--porter boutique in 1966. It was a move that tapped into the
1960s spirit of democratization, youth, and rebellion. A telling symbol of Rive Gauches
revolutionary significance was that the future designer Miuccia Prada, then a student from a
Milanese family of luxury-goods makers, would wear his Rive Gauche ensembles to political
protests. Id stand on street corners handing out left-wing leaflets in my YSL outfits. Maybe
it looked a little strange to other people, but I didnt care, I loved the clothes so much,[13]
she would later say.

The emotional seesawing of the fashion cycle, along with Saint Laurents drinking, drugs, and
club-going, were taking their toll by the 1970s. By 1973, when the house switched to a
grueling new schedule of presenting four shows a yeartwo couture and two prt--porter,
instead of just two couture showsthe designer was feeling increasingly shackled in his own
ever-expanding kingdom, which now included not only two clothing lines but numerous
licenses for perfumes, sunglasses, and beach towelsall engineered by the shrewd business
genius of Berg. Saint Laurent confessed to Newsweek, Ive made a rope to hang myself
with. Id love to be able to do fashion when I want to, but Im a prisoner of my own
commercial empire.[14] He described couture to Vogue as quite horriblea system of
meshing cogs, a cycle that one is caught up in which cuts short many relationships one could
have with friends, family . . . lots of things.[15]
The despairing designer again suffered a nervous breakdown in 1976 but, while hospitalized,
conceived of his most stunning and exotic couture collection to date: lush furs and foulards
inspired by the fantastical costumes of Serge Diaghilevs Ballets Russes. It was yet another
sudden and astonishing shift in Saint Laurents careeraway from the streamlined ready-to-
wear that he so boldly championed in the 1960s, and toward a more theatrical, ornate, escapist
aesthetic. The collection also represented a turning point in Saint Laurents private life, as he
became increasingly fearful and reclusive, retreating to the apartment he now kept separate
from Berg, obsessively rereading the works of Proust and amassing a vast collection of
opulent objets dart.
More meltdowns would follow in subsequent years. While Saint Laurent always commanded
respectas an oracle touched with geniushis collections would never quite regain their
luster or originality. By the time he retired, he had become a man all but crippled by his own
fears, an image of leonine decrepitude[16] who had long since passed day-to-day operations
to the hands of others. As The New Yorker noted, The dauphin of couture had become its
King Lear[17]with his own Learjet, and a succession of pampered French bulldogs who
all bore the name Moujik.
Yet the legacy of Saint Laurent endures. Without doubt, more people today recognize the pure
elements of the Saint Laurent style than did in his glory days. When asked toward the end of
his career what his motto was, the aging designer replied, The main thing is to last![18]
Judging by his legions of admirersincluding Marc Jacobs, Miuccia Prada, Donna Karan,
Giorgio Armani, and Christian Lacroixhe has had his wish.less

Occupation as well as the gay camp aesthetic of Warhols drag queens and the gay liberation
movement. The press is outraged. Saint Laurent openly dismisses the critics as narrow-
minded and reactionary, petty people paralysed by taboos[22] and denigrates couture as a
museum that is bogged down in a boring tradition of so-called good taste and
refinement.[23] Younger fans who did not live through the war take to the looks. May:

most expensive couture collection to date, inspired by the theatrical costumes of Serge
Diaghilevs Ballets Russes and by Vermeers painting Woman with a Pearl Necklace. The
collection is a complete departure; the press is ebullient. Vogues editor in chief, Grace
Mirabella, says, I dont think any of us will see a presentation like that again. Its been a long
time since we had that sense of excitement about clothes. In fact, Im not sure Ive ever seen
it.[24] Vogue writes that with his small-waisted, big-skirted rich peasants in lam and furs
and passementeried wools he has knocked the town on its ear. . . . The world wont change,

haute couture, is costume.[26]

China. Fall: Unveils a new perfume in Europe called Opium, with an advertising campaign,
shot by Helmut Newton, featuring model Jerry Hall reclining on gold lam in purple harem
pants beneath the line, Opium, for those who are addicted to Yves Saint Laurent.[27] There
are protests. Saint Laurent is accused of making drug addiction look chicbut sales are
astronomical.
1978
Becomes increasingly introverted, avoiding public appearances and retreating from friends;
rereads Proust obsessively, draws, and writes poetry. Tells Vogue, I often feel incapable of
communicating with people, even with those that I love and admire profoundly, because I
dont have the time and because I am in a frenzy.[28] Loulou de la Falaise becomes the
public face of Yves Saint Laurent, attending events in Yvess place, and soon begins
overseeing the Rive Gauche collections with Anne-Marie Muoz and other assistants. Yves
Saint Laurent makeup debuts. Critics begin to bemoan the lower standards of Rive Gauche, as
Saint Laurent indulges more in couture. September: Opium launched in America with a
decadent $300,000 party aboard the Peking, docked in the East River of New York City.

imitating or evoking his designs in their collections. Meanwhile, Edmund White writes in the

no trouble recalling names and dates, but he seemed heavily tranquillised or perhaps just
depressed; enormous silences crept into our conversation.[31]
2002
Presents his final couture collection in January at the Centre Georges Pompidou. I have
grappled with anguish and I have been through sheer hell, he says in a statement. I have
known those fair-weather friends we call tranquilizers and drugs. I have known the prison of
