Nothing lasts forever, well, except for maybe the style of Yves Saint Laurent. For every decade there’s a YSL look to go with it, from Mondrian dresses of the ’60s up to the pouf shapes of the ’80s. (The latter was, in fact, just resurrected by Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent’s couture presentation at Paris Fashion Week.) The point? YSL items are worth the investment.
Lucky then, that a sale of rare Yves-designed pieces arrives online at the Parisian vintage store Resee today. Cofounders Sofia Bernardin and Sabrina Marshall curated a selection of memorable items to mark the 50th anniversary of Saint Laurent’s Left Bank store. “In launching Rive Gauche in 1966, M. Saint Laurent became the first designer to approach ready-to-wear with the same detail and innovation as haute couture. We wanted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rive Gauche with pieces that reflected this: a spirit of modernity that was at one point very wearable and on the other side incredibly detailed and experimental,” they told Vogue.com over email.
The duo’s tight edit of six pieces includes the iconic safari dress to a bow-necked blouse in red, white, and blue stripes. Alone, the items retain a nostalgic flair, but when styled with dip-dyed jeans and modern sandals, as shown on the site, they look thoroughly modern. “You can extract any piece from this sale and wear it today in a way that is modern and relevant,” they said.
