In celebration of Yves Saint Laurent, the man who empowered women and created the first tuxedo for those strong independant women out there and now the opening of Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal exhibition I have put together a wishlist of items I am lusting over! Of course I have included YSL's iconic Le Smoking Tuxedo jacket which has become a timeless style statement and has been seen on almost everyone who is an anyone! Including the likes on Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Madonna and everyones favourite model, Kate Moss.
I wanted to incorporate Yves Saint Laurent's strong, androgynous feel which he became so well known for but also incorporate my own style. So, instead of the classic ruffled white shirt, black bow tie and trousers I have paired the Le Smoking jacket with an embroided white tunic dress with the classic YSL gold logo chain. I then, of course being me, had to add a pair of black leather, almond toe boots for the rock 'n' roll vibe.
Whilst browsing through the Saint Laurent collection on the Far Fetch website I came across this sky blue felt rabbit fur hat and immediately fell in love! It is the perfect mix of masculine and feminine and fits exactly with the theme I wanted to create.
Of course this wish list was created in celebration of the man himself so it only seemed right to add copious amounts of monogram pieces, which included the gold tone monogram cuff, the medium silver tone calf leather monogram bag and matching purse. I then added this cute star & heart ring because I just couldn't leave it behind!
“For a woman, le smoking is an indispensable garment with which she finds herself continually in fashion, because it is about style, not fashion. Fashions come and go, but style is forever.”
