Yves Saint Laurent was the first couture house to introduce the concept of luxury ready-to-wear with the label’s 1966 ‘Saint Laurent Rive Gauche’ womenswear collection. The French house’s debut prét-a-porter line set a standard of youth and freedom that represented a critical first step in the modernization of fashion and irrevocably transformed the socio-cultural landscape. Throughout the years, the house’s pioneering styles, such as the iconic ‘le smoking’ jacket, have become de facto cultural touchstones, with couturier Yves Saint Laurent securing a definitive reputation as one of the twentieth century’s preeminent designers.
Now it is time for you to enjoy the collection just as many women before you.
