Synonymous with a polished Parisian style, androgyny and rock and roll edginess, designer Yves Saint Laurent began his eponymous label in 1961. Introducing a collection of sculpted separates including signature tuxedo jackets and leather bikers, Yves Saint Laurent made waves in the 60s and 70's by becoming the first design house to introduce ready-to-wear. Effortlessly cool, the design house continues to produce covetable seasonal collections under the new creative direction of Hedi Slimane. Saint Laurent's range of sweats are created in contemporary silhouettes, with oversized boxy shapes and cropped lengths contrasting with traditional styles. Studs and mesh add a dose of grunge-glamour, creating a statement look.
