L'amour fou by Pierre Thoretton( Visual )

8 editions published in 2011 in French and English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few, if any, changed fashion like Yves Saint-Laurent did in the 20th century. ... follows the indelible icon through the eyes of lifetime love and business partner Pierre Bergé--from his early days as a design prodigy for Christian Dior through his decades as the face of a fashion empire. ... captures the complete man behind the monogram, whose private struggles with depression and substance abuse often underscored his triumphs and innovations"--Container
Yves Saint Laurent style by Yves Saint Laurent( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yves Saint Laurent's signature design style intertwines references from the art world with those of popular culture and social revolution. Since its establishment in the Sixties by the designer and Pierre Bergé, the haute couture house has redefined femininity, creating arguably the most famous (and sexiest) suit for women, "Le Smoking" Tuxedo, and innovative collections such as Pop Art, Ballets Russes, and Picasso. This retrospective book is the first to cover forty years of the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house and highlights the inventive character of the designer's work. More than one hundred and sixty of the best designs and accessories, all taken from the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Collection, are presented in photographs and numerous sketches by Yves Saint Laurent, published for the first time."--inside cover

Yves Saint Laurent by Roxanne Lowit( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dazzling portrait of Yves Saint Laurent and his world of fashion over the last twenty-five years of his career, by legendary pioneer of backstage fashion photography, Roxanne Lowit. Yves Saint Laurent is a name synonymous with style, elegance, and high fashion. When he came on the scene at Dior and then started his own line, he quickly changed the way people regarded haute couture and the world of fashion itself. He revolutionized women's eveningwear when he introduced le smoking, a woman's tuxedo, and made couture accessible to a younger generation. Yves Saint Laurent is Roxanne Lowit's personal photographic history of Saint Laurent, the man and the fashion, from 1978, the year she first met him, to the last show he gave in 2002. With contributions from YSL's muses and admirers, including Catherine Deneuve, Betty Catroux, Lucie de la Falaise, Pat Cleveland, and Valerie Steele, this book represents the backstage experience at YSL's shows as Lowit experienced them herself. Whether surrounded by beautiful models or peeking at the catwalk from the wings, every moment was a magnificent photo opportunity. Lowit shares magical moments of YSL with the world; intimate, social, absorbed in fashion; and creates a unique portrait of this towering figure of postwar couture
Majorelle : a Moroccan oasis by Claire de Virieu( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These magnificent tropical Moroccan gardens were laid out in the 1920s by Louis Majorelle, the French decorator, architect, and painter renowned for his participation in both the art nouveau and art deco movements. He gave his name to the shade of blue lavishly used both to paint the house and ornament the garden decoration. The site has been superbly restored and replanted by the designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Berge in the vibrant primary colors of the original, to which they have added their personal touch

Yves Saint Laurent : the perfection of style by Florence Müller( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent's reputation precedes him but what of the man behind the work? Florence Muüller traces Saint Laurent's career, from aspiring designer to Christian Dior's protege to director of his own fashion house from 1961 until 2002. The book emphasizes the designer's creative process, his inspirations, the conception and fabric selection, the various stages of fitting and production and takes the reader behind the scenes of the atelier. Also featured are original sketches, runway shots, and never-before-published photographs of Saint Laurent at work, as well as new photography of iconic YSL designs from the exhibition, including the first Tuxedo pantsuit (1966), the Safari tunic (1968), the Mondrian dress (1965), and the Wesselmann dress (1966). The book also includes a 1991 interview from Le Figaro with the late designer. This focused exploration shows how Saint Laurent's radical clothes for the modern woman presented here in gorgeous detail continue to inspire fashion lovers and fans of art and design for their innovation and perfection of style.00Exhibition: Seattle Art Museum, USA (11.10.16 - 17.01.2017) / Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, USA (07.05. - 26.08.2017)"--Publisher's description
