Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal



"Fashion fades, style is eternal" - YSL

With the inauguration of the Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal exhibition at the Bowes Museum, Yves pioneering designing vision and timeless pieces are being quite rightly praised. We are all aware that Yves challenged fashion in ways that had not been done before him, introducing masculine tailoring in women's dressing which had not previously even been considered. It only takes a stroll through his gardens in Marrakesh to appreciate the unique way which Yves perceived the world, and the creative vision that that perception translated into. I'm sure the exhibition is a must see, much like the film (Yves Saint Laurent) which is a beautifully shot portrayal of his life through very chic cinematography. 

Compiling this look, centred around the Iconic Smoking Jacket, was both the easiest and hardest task. Easy because you can combine any of the pieces together to come up with a killer look, hard because I had to limit myself to one set. I put this together as the ultimate heading out for drinks at dust ensemble.
Scrolling through the items, I realised I could easily fill my wardrobe exclusively with Saint Laurent and reuse the classic pieces again and again in different combinations - always arriving at a look that would be slick, head-turning and effortless. I mean, the monogram jewellery alone is heavenly. Not to mention that brown bag
