Founded in 1961, shortly after his appointment as head designer of the house of Dior, Yves Saint Laurent was the first couture house to debut a full pret-a-porter line with the 1966 'Rive Gauche' collection, synonymous with youth and freedom. The label has since gone on to become one of the most recognized luxury labels in the world, with a sleek, androgynous style and rock-chic edge. A go-to for sleek tailoring, covetable accessories and biker girl leather jackets, Creative Director Hedi Slimane has continued to give the iconic label rebellious attitude. For statement hosiery, look to Saint Laurent. Tights are adorned with Swarovski crystals and snakeskin prints for a glamorous touch.
