Je vous trouve très beau

At the YSL headquarters early this morning, during the Prefall presentation, I couldn't help looking at Monsieur Saint Laurent's pictures up on the wall and to remember how handsome and charming he was. Elegance was synonym with his work, and every time he spoke he showed what an interesting and sensitive person he was. Well... maybe they don't make them like that anymore, but, from what I've seen so far, YSL's prefall collection looks rather nice. I'll be working at the showroom for the next week or so, so you can have regular updates about the collection if you follow me on Twitter. I think it's gonna be exciting- among other things, there's gossip about Anna Wintour coming to see the collection on monday with Stefano (I don't need to tell you how the staff are reacting to that, you've seen it all in "Devil wears Prada"). So, yeah, lots of work planned for the next few days.
Have you been following the men's shows? It seems this is the season of short films... I've seen so many already: Marni's (futuristic), Pringle's (hilarious), Prada's (beautiful and mysterious) and of course, YSL's. It's a film by Bruce Weber and I think it's actually really interesting and there's more to it than meets the eye (his talk about nudity reminded me of this picture of M. Saint Laurent I have posted above). I won't post the films here because I guess many of you have seen most of them (unless you want me to, in which case don't hesitate to leave me a comment and ask for it!), but I actually like this film trend.
What I am posting is the sneak preview of the Saint Laurent show that took place earlier today... Can't wait to see the whole collection too!


  1. i agree - YSL was SO handsome. i love his glasses.

  2. Very interesting thoughts... Yves seemed to be the quintessential elegant yet human man...

  3. I love YSL sooo much!
    He was a poetic soul with an extraordinary sensibility, which means he was the ultimate fashion artist.


Thanks for your lovely comments.
