Yves Saint Laurent leaves us @ age 71...

Mr. Saint Laurent exploded on the fashion scene in 1958 and endured as one of the best-known and most influential couturiers of the second half of the 20th century. The fashion career of Yves Saint Laurent was highlighted by a central paradox. The designer who arguably did more to advance fashion than any other of his generation pointed the way to the future by consistently reviving the past. His enduring fascination with more gracious or, perhaps, more vital times, informed his refined, theatrical aesthetic and made him the most influential designer of his day. His celebrated fashions of the ’60s and the ’70s continue to inspire younger generations.
