This volume features looks that debuted at his first runway show in January 1962 all the way to his final haute couture presentation in 2002. Yves Saint Laurent: The Impossible Collection[2] features seminal pieces like the Mondrian shift dress, the black dress from the film Belle de Jour, tailored pantsuits and numerous “coup de crayon” draped gowns.
