Why We Love This

Madsen, Axel. Living for Design: The Yves Saint Laurent Story. New York: Delacorte Press, 1979. First printing. One of the first biographies attempting to explain the YSL magic, written at the time the fashion house had finished two world-dominating decades of success. Starting in 1958, with his first sensational show for Christian Dior, and taking the story to the '80s, journalist Axel Madsen defines Yves Saint Laurent's extraordinary genius for the details of fashion.
