Yves Saint Laurent's signature design style is marked by its intertwining of references from the art world with those of popular culture and social revolution. Since its establishment in the 1960s by Saint Laurent himself and his partner, Pierre Berge, the Yves Saint Laurent haute couture house has redefined femininity, creating arguably the most famous - and sexiest - suit for women, 'Le Smoking' suit, as well as the innovative, landmark collections Pop Art, Ballet Russes and Picasso.This retrospective book is a one-of-a-kind complete survey of the forty-year history of the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house, highlighting the inventive character of the designer's work. Over 160 of the best designs and accessories, all taken from the Foundation Pierre Berge-Yves Saint Laurent collection, appear along with drawings and photographs. This volume is a beautiful and comprehensive tribute to the timeless style of Yves Saint Laurent design. "Yves Saint Laurent" is the companion book to an exhibition that will travel to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in the summer of 2008 and the de Young Museum in San Francisco in winter of 2008-9.

Format: Taschenbuch
Dieses Buch ist in einem fast neuwertigen Zustand. Es lässt sich auch gut lesen und die Aufmachung gefällt sehr.
Durch den Versand über Canada hat es etwas gedauert, aber es hat sich gelohnt darauf zu warten.
Jederzeit wieder.

HASH(0x9f275c18) von 5 Sternen Not a full retrospective, but an incredible look into the creative process 2. Februar 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It's been years since I've written a review on Amazon, but the reviews I've seen for this book have compelled me to write again.

The strengths - and weaknesses - of YSL Style become more apparent when compared to the other recent YSL book from the same publisher (Yves Saint Laurent), which has received more positive reviews. From this point on, I will refer to the two books as "YSL Style" (pink book) and "YSL" (black book).

The quality of the printing and paper for YSL Style is good but not as luxurious as YSL. If your sole criterion for deciding whether to purchase a book is based on its status as an object and collectible, then YSL is the clear choice over YSL Style. If you are more interested in the content, then read on, because the two books serve different purposes.

YSL Style contains a generous number of the designer's drawings, far more than I've seen in any other fashion book. It provides great insight into the creative process and the evolution of ideas not just of Saint Laurent himself but also more generally in the arts and design. In this regard, YSL Style is distinct from most fashion retrospectives, more introverted; the reader peeks into Saint Laurent's sketchbook. The view is of Saint Laurent as an artist, like a painter in working in a studio rather than a figure in the glamorous world of celebrity and commerce.

In many other ways, YSL Style likely falls short of YSL. The latter book shows much more final work, more photographs than drawings. It also better conveys the ways in which Saint Laurent's designs were received, in terms of fashion shows, media coverage, and how people wore his clothes. As a retrospective, YSL provides a 360-degree view, while YSL Style is more focused. Some readers may view this as a limitation of YSL Style. I found the proximity to the very spark of creativity to be exhilarating.

HASH(0x9f211678) von 5 Sternen As an introduction and overview, wonderful! 9. Februar 2009
Von Chic Savage - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Given the recent death of M. Yves Saint Laurent, one can only hope that this is but the first of many volumes to come devoted to this extraordinary talent. As an introduction to his Haute Couture and Rive Gauche collections this paperback volume is surprisingly jam-packed with good images and copies of his drawings.

For further reading and contemplation of M. Saint Laurent's work, I suggest the following titles, if you can find them. The first, is the exhibition catalogue published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in conjunction with their 1983-84 exhibition. "Yves Saint Laurent", 1983, ASIN: B00188CAQU.

The second, is a beautiful volume entitled "Yves Saint Laurent: Images of Design 1958-1988", 1988, ASIN: B000ON4GCQ

For an insight into M. Saint Laurent's life and the process of Haute Couture, I recommend the marvelous DVD entitled "Yves Saint Laurent - His Life and Times/5 Avenue Marceau 75116 Paris", released in 2007 and available, as of this writing, here at AMAZON.

HASH(0x9f2115b8) von 5 Sternen A book that, at the time, had something new to offer. However, new books are on the way too. 15. Januar 2010
Von Papermate - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I agree with Chic Savage's review. The book covering the exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1983 (by Saint Laurent and Diana Vreeland) is a more comprehensive overview of the most important and influential years of Saint Laurents' work, however most of the garments featured in this book are NOT in the Met book. Obviously, being a recent publication, you get some more recent designs in YSL Style, but you also get some older designs rarely seen in any of the published YSL books out there. I have not seen the 'Images of Design' book yet, but the Met book and YSL Style complement each other and, when combined, offer good but still not complete visual coverage of the designer's career. So, afterall, I am still glad I own this and the met book.

New books are on the way, so check them out first and flip through them in your local bookstore or library when they become available , if you can, before purchasing on Amazon, perhaps they'll have complete coverage of YSL's career.

Another great book to own is a paperback published in 1987 by the Art gallery of New South Wales (Australia) in conjunction with a travelling YSL exhibiton. This book features many RUNWAY photos paired with small pictures of the original sketches of the designs. Search for Australian sellers on [...] or other sites for the best prices as, understandably, there are many copies about in Australia , so the price is more reasonable than in than the rest of the world.

If you can get hold of a copy of the HARDCOVER edition of the Met book then do so, instead of settling with the softcover which has a less attractive cover, however the content is exactly the same.

Went to see the display at the musuem at Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. Yves Saint Laurent: Style Then purchased the book. It was a good addition to the sight seeing and gives us great pleasure to review what we had seen.
HASH(0x9f20b9f0) von 5 Sternen great for decor 9. Januar 2016
Von Crystal Dove - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I don't care too much for what's inside the book. I primarily purchased with as decor. I was worried when I saw it was a paper back, but it is not cheap paper. I love the color and it looks great in my collection of fashion books! only 4 stars for content. 5 stars for appearance! Depends what you're looking for when purchasing it.
