INTO THE ARCHIVES Yves Saint Laurent and Betty Catroux 1969… Saint Laurent SS||2013

Everytime a new creative director takes over a famous maison, their debut collection is mostly an homage to the design heritage. Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent is no exception in that, even if he would prefer to appear always more special than others. His fist collection for SS||2013 [all rights] had numerous quotation of Yves Saint Laurent work for his ready to wear line Rive Gauche, especially details from the outfits worn by Yves' muse Betty Catroux in 1969 [all lefts].
