As a testament to the influence and legacy of YSL, some of the world's foremost experts in fashion and design commemorate the label's 60th anniversary runway show with an illustrated lexicon that features iconic images from its extraordinary archives.

Yves Saint Laurent (1936–2008) revolutionized French haute couture in the 1960s, making ready-to-wear fashionable and introducing non-European influences. This book provides an array of images, accompanied by listings compiled by YSL experts that include his style inspirations (C is for Costumes, like the Russian-inspired collection of 1976–77; T is for Tuxedo, first referenced in 1965's “Le Smoking”) and personal elements (J is for the designer’s Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech; R is for the chic Rive Gauche quarter and the house’s 1970 fragrance). This comprehensive look into YSL's life reveals the master of the 20th century.
