“La mode passe, le style reste” – Yves Saint Laurent
On August 1st, Yves Saint Laurent would have turned 80. It is thus the perfect time to get to know the late designer a little more.
Here are 10 facts you (maybe) didn’t know about Yves Saint Laurent!
1. Yves Saint Laurent was born on August 1st, 1936 in Oran, Algeria. He passed away at his Paris home on June 1st 2008, after a long period of ill health. He was 71. As a mark of respect, all YSL stores in the world closed their doors for the duration of his funeral [1,2,3].
How was your week? Mine was busy busy, and I don’t think it’s going to calm down anytime soon. I really need to put my big girl boots on. For those of you with exams coming up, I guess the same can be said.
Something that can really help you when you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed with work, and when you want to channel your inner Olivia Pope, is to dress the part. Seriously, if you want to feel like a woman on top, dress like a woman on top. Funny coincidence, that’s exactly the topic of this post. The last SS16 trend by InStyle is: Woman on Top.
It’s been a long time! How are you? How summer treated you? 🙂
Back in June, I visited an exhibition about the lingerie brand PrimaDonna, “La Mémoire de l’Intime”, at the Bozar in Brussels. And I loved it! I loved the pieces they showed. I loved the “educational” part. I loved the mood of it.
