Master designer, Yves Saint Laurent, believes in empowering men and women through fashion. He wants his fans to feel confident, worldly, and liberated to do whatever they please when wearing his fashionable designs. Since the 1960s, YSL has been creating groundbreaking mixes of masculine and feminine attire and accessories to balance out the classic and the avant-garde. He has no problem blurring gender lines by putting women in trouser suits and military uniforms, and he also has no problem incorporating everyday basic staples into his fashion collections for the masses.
If you’re looking to boost your charisma with your accessories, then look no further than Yves Saint Laurent eyeglasses. Laurent’s creativity and flair flow through each of his designs beyond the notorious party scene of his fashion revolution days. Laurent and his longtime lover, Pierre Berge, founded the YSL company in 1961 after Laurent was fired from the Christian Dior fashion house. He didn’t fit in at Christian Dior because of his Beatnik-inspired collections and free-spirited designs. However, those aspects of his designer personality served him well once he created his very own brand.
Original YSL designs were inspired by Andy Warhol’s pop art, military uniforms, and safari expeditions. As the decades and trends progressed, YSL embraced the need to feel attractive more than the need to feel elegant. Unconventional women like Betty Catroux, Loulou de La Falaise, and Poloma Picasso loved the YSL look. Laurent was the first designer to use his own face and body to promote his brand in the early 1970s. Believe it or not, he wore only glasses and nothing else in his advertisement for a new men’s cologne called Pour Homme. YSL’s collection of eyewear blurs the lines between daytime wear and evening wear, runway wear and street wear, formal wear and casual wear. YSL continues to be a few steps ahead of the fashion curve and bring out new styles that are still brimming with originality, even by modern fashion standards.
