Fashions Fade. Style is Eternal.
Founded in 1961, Yves Saint Laurent is one of the most prominent fashion houses of the 20th century. Originally a House of Haute Couture, Yves Saint Laurent revolutionized modern fashion in 1966 with the introduction of luxury ready-to-wear under the name Saint Laurent Rive Gauche.
Since its inception, Yves Saint Laurent has held enormous influence both inside and outside the fashion industry. Over the years, its founder, the couturier Yves Saint Laurent secured a reputation as one of the 20th century’s foremost designers and personalities.
Yves Saint Laurent’s creativity was the heart of the brand, pushing boundaries forward, and he was never afraid of shocking or provoking in the name of empowerment and freedom of thoughts.
Saint Laurent now competes globally with high-end exclusive luxury brands and occupies a leading position in the sector.
Saint Laurent designs and markets a broad range of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, small leather goods, jewelry, scarves, ties and eyewear.
Production is mainly divided between Italy and France, where its original workshop still manufactures ready-to-wear garments. Under worldwide license agreements, the House also produces and distributes eyewear, fragrances and cosmetics.
