ysl inspiration

last sunday i saw the new yves saint laurent biopic. what a feast for the eyes. any flaws it might have are easily made up by the visuals. the story was inspiring as well. it made me want to sew, draw, write, shop. it also made me interested in the designer himself, & his (older) work. yves saint laurent is one of those designers i’ve never really appreciated for some reason. funny, since he introduced pants for women.

i’ve been doing some googling throughout the week & now have a ysl folder in my pictures. some of my favourites:
