"It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion." - Yves Saint-Laurent
Of his infamous 1976 "rich peasant" collection....
"The clothes incorporated all my dreams, all my heroines in the novels, the operas, the paintings. It was my heart - everything I love I gave to this collection." - YSL
"My small job as a courtier is to make clothes that reflect our times. I'm convinced women want to wear pants." - YSL
Merci, Saint-Laurent. Merci.
