Yves Saint Laurent became a pivotal figure in the modernization of fashion. Ever since childhood, the future couturier has predicted a bright future in art. At the age of 17, Saint Laurent ended up in Paris, where his sketches were noted by Michel de Brunhoff, editor-in-chief of Paris Vogue. Brunhoff realized that the young man definitely has the gift of a fashion designer, which needs further development. This is how he met the great Dior, for whom Saint Laurent worked as an assistant and later was able to head the fashion house of the eminent couturier. Saint Laurent idolized the master, who taught the young fashion designer the basics of art.
In 1961 Yves Saint Laurent founded his eponymous brand. Possessing his own vision of high fashion, with each new collection he destroyed the established ideas, creating incredible outfits. The fame of the young designer spread very quickly. By the seventies, the brand had turned into an empire with multimillion-dollar income, which brought not only clothing but also accessories and perfumes. Saint Laurent sunglasses have always been in demand. Elegant frames of oval, rectangular, round shapes, made of acetate or metal, are the embodiment of exquisite French style. Crafted to the highest fashion standards, elegant pieces are perfect for flamboyant, romantic, or dramatic looks.
