RIP Yves

"Fashion fades. Style is eternal."—Yves Saint Laurent

He was a fashion designer by trade, but Yves Saint Laurent’s enduring legacy is that of gender equalizer, silhouette soothsayer, child prodigy, and inventor of the ready-to-wear category. Saint Laurent, who died in his Paris home at age 71, forever changed the modern woman’s wardrobe with the tuxedo jackets, trench coats, and most memorably, pants, he both glamorized and popularized in the 1960s and 70s.
