by Saint Laurent, Yves. (1936â2008)
Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Striking original large-format jacket and dress design in the hand of the French fashion designer regarded as one of the greatest names in fashion history. Acccomplished in pencil and color inks and signed "Yves Saint Laurent" lower left in bold black ink. Approx 19 x 23 inches, archivally framed to slightly larger. A very rare authentic example, seldom encountered on the market and with extraordinary provenance. From the collection of June Weir-Baron (1928 - 2015), Fashion Historian and Journalist, the first woman Vice President at Fairchild Publications, a major force in her capacity as Fashion Editor and Assistant publisher of Women's Wear Daily and W, as an influential editor at Vogue, Executive Fashion Editor at Harper's Bazaar, deputy Style Editor for The New York Times Sunday Magazine and Contributing Editor at Mirabella. The design is ca. 1985, the year in which Caroline Rennolds Milbank wrote, "The most consistently celebrated and influential designer of the past twenty-five years, Yves Saint Laurent can be credited with both spurring the couture's rise from its sixties ashes and with finally rendering ready-to-wear reputable."
