To Yves Saint Laurent, one of my fashion design icons, who loved Marcel Proust's À la recherche du temps perdu, I bid adieu. You will be remembered well.

"The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes, in seeing the universe with the eyes of another, of hundreds of others, in seeing the hundreds of universes that each of them sees." - Marcel Proust

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is currently displaying 145 of Yves Saint Laurent’s best ensembles, in a collaboration with Paris’ Fondation Pierre Berge Yves Saint Laurent and the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco.

image above and text below from mbam.qc.ca
The exhibition is divided into four main themes:

The Stroke of a Pencil” where the designer’s idea is followed from the original sketch;
The Yves Saint Laurent Revolution,” where feminized versions of men’s attire rub shoulders with seductive apparel;
The Palette,” which shows how traditional rules of colour harmony were reversed in new contrasts inspired by cross-fertilization; and
Lyrical Sources,” which explores the historical, literary (Marcel Proust, Oscar Wilde, Louis Aragon, Jean Cocteau…) and artistic influences that were interpreted and translated by this genius of couture.

Throughout his career, Yves Saint Laurent examined the work of the great artists of our day, expressing his personal tastes and the paintings he admired by transforming painting into fabric.
Some of his creations reflect the visual sensations of Impressionism, while others liberate the expressive power of some of the great names and movements of modern art: Mondrian and Poliakoff in 1965, the “Pop Art” dresses in 1966, Picasso in 1979 and Braque in 1988.

I had a nostalgic wandering on YSL's end of 90's collections.
From F/W 1998 collection, model: Ling Tang.
This is my humble hommage to Monsieur Saint Laurent.
(a larger one by clicking).
If you think it is no the place for this post, I obviously understand that mods delete it.

I want to run into a boutique and just buy up everything.

I really thought more magazines would be doing some sort of cover/story etc. I need to find that French Elle.
