Saint Laurent is a luxury fashion house founded by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé.
Founded in 1961, Yves Saint Laurent was the first couture house to introduce the concept of luxury prêt-à-porter with the 1966 ‘Rive Gauche’ collection, synonymous with youth and freedom.
Taking the reins from Stefano Pilati in the spring of 2012, Hedi Slimane–one of fashion’s modern-day provocateurs–has thrown open the remit of this sophisticated Parisian house to a new edgier crowd, renaming the brand Saint Laurent. Skinny jeans trimmed with micro-link chains and super-soft leather biker jackets comprise the new house look.
Saint Laurent continues to position itself at the summit of the luxury universe.
