Very true, and yet at the same time his 'look' was in constant evolution. From the Beatnick to the 40's-inspired to the Ballet Russes collection there was such a wide range of styles, colours, and attitudes, yet somehow they don't seem to lack a common thread. One of the many reasons I adore Yves

Wonderful thread, everyone. There are a few pieces at the Met as well, the first link below is a dress donated to the museum by Diana Vreeland.

There are a few other pieces at the Met online but they've already been posted on this thread.

I love how in the video it says the house could close, seeing how large YSL still is.

you are welcome kikidior, here is the young Lucienne wearing her son creation for Dior, pic is from static scan for YSL book above, thanks static for your effort .

Lucienne has played a major rule in Yves story by supporting him & beliveing in his talent & intrest.

I love that dress so chic, so sublime, timeless ... very now i can see it on the red carpet.
