Françoise Sagan encourages Yves to publish the comic strip that he had started drawing in 1955 when he worked at Dior.
In the preface, Yves Saint Laurent remarks that contrary to Flaubert who wrote, “I am Madame Bovary,”“I am not La Vilaine Lulu.”
His character was inspired by a colleague at Dior.
La Vilaine Lulu - the nasty Lulu - denounces small-minded couturiers and rigid social mores.
Saint Laurent's illustrated 'tales for sadistic and mature children', based on a tailor at Dior who dressed in crinolines after work. Reissued in 2002 by Colette Paris, each edition, identical to the original is signed and numbered by the designer himself.
