You will be missed YSL

 Mon dieu. Fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent passed away in his Paris home yesterday at the age of 71. The exact cause of death is currently unknown, but reports say that Yves had been suffering from brain cancer.

Yves was a fashion protegé in the 1950’s taking over as lead designer of the house of Christian Dior at 21. The reclusive French designer, a towering figure in the fashion community and beyond, retired from haute couture in 2002 following a career that spanned four decades. He was widely considered by most to be the last of a generation of skilled artisans that included Coco Chanel and Christian Dior, both of whom, like Saint Laurent, helped make Paris the fashion capital of the world.
