Inhaltsangabe: The name of Yves Saint Laurent, one of the great fashion designers of the twentieth century, evokes the now-iconic looks he helped popularize as part of the modern woman's wardrobe: the Le Smoking tuxedo jacket, the pea coat, the Mondrian dress, the jumpsuit. But seven years after Saint Laurent's death, the man himself remains an enigma and a source of fascination (two Yves Saint Laurent biopics were released in 2014). In Yves Saint Laurent's Studio: Mirror and Secrets, the first book to be published by the Fondation Pierre Bergé with Yves Saint Laurent, fashion historian Jérômine Savignon invites the reader into the designer's studio, revealing Saint Laurent's approach to fashion and design. Illustrated with more than 40 previously unpublished photographs, this volume offers a fresh, behind-the-scenes glimpse at the work of this iconic fashion designer.
A precocious talent, Yves Saint Laurent (1936–2008) started work at the venerable fashion house of Christian Dior at the age of 18. He started his own design house in 1961 with his partner Pierre Bergé. Saint Laurent was one of the first designers to hire nonwhite models, and the first to lend his name to a ready-to-wear line while maintaining his haute couture business. He became the first designer to be honored with a Costume Institute retrospective at The Metropolitan Museum of Art during his lifetime, with a 1983 show organized by Diana Vreeland, who called him the "Pied Piper of fashion," because "whatever he does, women of all ages, from all over the world, follow."
Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, the text is impressively informed and informative, the photography inherently interesting, and taken as a whole, "Yves Saint Laurent's Studio: Mirror and Secrets" will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to community and academic library Fashion History reference collections in general, and the supplemental studies reading lists for students of the life and work of Yves Sain Laurent in particular.

Presented in a modest pocket-sized hard-cover, Yves Saint Laurent's Studio: Mirrors and secrets (Actes Sud) collects intimate snapshots of Saint Laurent the man at work in his storied Paris studio on Avenue Marceau. Archival Photos depict a creative environment in artful and productive states of disarray, filled with sketches, assistants, fabric rolls, and plenty of cigarettes. “I couldn’t live without my gypsy atmosphere... I hate a room that looks deserted and sanctified,” reads one of the book’s many quotes from the designer. “I like a room to be completely anonymous, like a hotel room, or a reflection of a person’s most intimate life.” Remembrances from passerby, friends and colleagues over the years, including an essay by fashion historian and author Jeromine Savignon, further paint a colorful oral history of the time and space.

Filled with books, photos, fabric swatches, and a wandering French bulldog, Yves Saint Laurent’s studio was a wonderfully chaotic and creative space. Fashion historian Jéromine Savignon’s new book (Actes Sud) opens the door into this magical world with some 40 unreleased images, including sketches and photographs of the master at work. (Karin Nelson W)
In “Yves Saint Laurent’s Studio ― Mirror and Secrets,” fashion historian Jéromine Savignon follows the process behind the designer’s couture collections. Published by Actes Sud, the book comes in both French and in English, and contains around 40 unreleased images ― including sketches and photographs of the designer at work in various studios ― along with quotes from the designer Pierre Bergé. Photographers include Marc Riboud, Jeanloup Sieff and François-Marie Banier.
The author divides the designer’s creation process into five acts. “The process is a dogged pursuit of perfection in an almost mute effervescence,” according to Savignon. (Laure Guilbault Women's Wear Daily)
