YSL: trauma, drama and haute couture.

the drama, the trauma, the couture, the houses, the art – l’amour fou indeed.

what a wonderful piece of art – about so many pieces of art. truly glorious. some may say at what cost – and yet, how could they possibly know how it felt to be YSL.

here is how he described it: “Every man needs aesthetic phantoms in order to exist,” Mr. Saint Laurent said at the announcement of his retirement. “I have known fear and the terrors of solitude. I have known those fair-weather friends we call tranquilizers and drugs. I have known the prison of depression and the confinement of hospital. But one day, I was able to come through all of that, dazzled yet sober.”

  1. I liked the movie a lot. Unlike most celebrity bio-pics it does not stink of PR. Like most bio-pics, however, it is a little less than candid about the biographical information. I would like to have seen more of the clothes and the fabulous stuff they collected. Yves Saint Laurent was among the greatest of the greats of haute couture, a culture that pretty much spanned the twentieth century and is already fading into history.

do say something - do :-)
