“Yves Saint Laurent invented everything, revisited everything, transformed everything to the service of a passion, to let woman shine and to free her beauty and mystery.” said by Francois Pinault. It is with great sadness that I say that the legendary and one of the most influential designers, Yves Saint Laurent, passed away yesterday evening in Paris at age 71. Although he retired from the fashion-empire since 2002, his legacy will always be remembered. Rest In Peace, Yves Saint Laurent.
