INTO THE ARCHIVES... Yves Saint Laurent SS||1971 and Saint Laurent SS||2014

A wonderful editorial published in Vogue UK's June 1971 issue, photographed by Peter Knapp, is featuring super model Cathee Dahmen wearing Yves Saint Laurent's legendary red lips print [left].... which the new creative director of Saint Laurent,  Hedi Slimane, has decided to make revive for SS||2014 [right]. Maybe a little bit too close to FW 2012||13, a season many designers have done patterns inspired by Surrealism and tromp l'oeil motifs, due to the Schiaparelli||Prada exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2012.
