Does anyone think that they may put the Yves back at some point? I have never written to a company in my life, but I am ready to complaint about this- I haven't heard even one person that is happy about it....

boomer-
i have come to think that it's better that they leave it off now that Yves is not designing anymore...

it's not Yves Saint Laurent without Yves...
and maybe that is really how it should be, you know?
maybe it's for the best...

plus- i really wouldn't want any of my original vintage pieces confused with the commercial stuff that is going on there now...
it's a good way to separate them, in a way...

Yves Saint Laurent's Rive Gauche line for women debuted in 1966, with menswear following in 1969. In promoting ready-to-wear clothing, Saint Laurent successfully outfitted a new group of consumers with his designs. In this example, Saint Laurent showed how a functional garment, a basic man's raincoat, could be adapted, enlivened and made fashionable. Men's clothing in the 1960s incorporated colors far beyond the traditional muted palette and the teal blue of this raincoat illustrates how the "peacock revolution" of that decade extended into the 1970s.

Yves Saint Laurent's Rive Gauche line for women debuted in 1966. In promoting ready-to-wear clothing, Saint Laurent successfully outfitted a new group of consumers with his designs. One of his successful looks for Rive Gauche was the "safari" jacket, a feminine version of what a big-game hunter might wear while traveling in Africa. In this example, Saint Laurent paired the jacket with trousers to create one of the pantsuits he regularly offered for women's wear. He also used a dyed textile that resembled handmade tie-dyed garments of the 1960s, which illustrates how counter-culture styles influenced mainstream fashion from established design houses during this period, a reversal of previous norms.

There's a biopic of Yves Saint Laurent currently in production in Paris. Here is a behind the scenes picture of the one Pierre Berg gave his blessing to. More here.

saw a girl today wearing an oversized dark green coat with black trim and black velvet under the sleeves and collar...
she looked so great and i just had to ask her...
is that vintage YSL...

she was very surprised and said it was...

frankly- it was the most modern coat i have seen in a very long time and i congratulated her on her wonderful find...

those vintage pieces really are better than anything going on today...
hands down...
