Video of the Moment: Yves Saint Laurent Eyewear
I've always had a fascination with Yves Saint Laurent. A lot of what we see in womenswear today is primarily attributed to his work. In this short film by Karim Sadli, the essence of Saint Laurent becomes the inspiration; witness the the duality of masculinity and femininity, light against dark, the iconic thick-framed spectacles, and the sheer sensuality. Once you see model Clément Chabernaud assume the repose, you can't help but recall the allusion: the fashion world's ultimate ad campaign featuring Saint Laurent himself.
