A dazzling portrait of Yves Saint Laurent and his world of fashion over the last twenty-five years of his career, by legendary pioneer of backstage fashion photography, Roxanne Lowit

Yves Saint Laurent is a name synonymous with style, elegance, and high fashion.

He revolutionized women’s eveningwear when he introduced le smoking, a woman’s tuxedo, and made couture accessible to a younger generation.

 Yves Saint Laurentis Roxanne Lowit’s personal photographic history of Saint Laurent, the man and the fashion, from 1978, the year she first met him, to the last show he gave in 2002. With contributions from YSL’s muses and admirers, including Catherine Deneuve, Betty Catroux, Lucie de la Falaise, Pat Cleveland, and Valerie Steele, this book represents the backstage experience at YSL’s shows as Lowit experienced them herself. Whether surrounded by beautiful models or peeking at the catwalk from the wings, every moment was a magnificent photo opportunity. Lowit shares magical moments of YSL with the world–intimate, social, absorbed in fashion–and creates a unique portrait of this towering figure of postwar couture.

About the Author:

Roxanne Lowit is a New York-based fashion photographer who started taking pictures in the 1970s. Her photographs have appeared in many magazines, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, V Magazine, and Glamour, and she has worked on numerous advertising campaigns for, among others, Dior, Barney’s, and Vivian Westwood.

Pierre Bergé was the partner of Yves Saint Laurent and is the co-founder of Yves Saint Laurent Couture House.

Review:

“The book is a study of glamour, with yards of rich fabrics, enormous jewels and stunning designs.And the great stories―like the times YSL ripped off his tuxedo cummerbund to make a top for Grace Jones in the wings of her show―only undergird his genius.”
- TIME

“The book is filled with intriguing portraits depicting the vibrancy of the man, the artistry of his designs, and the tableaux in which he worked and lived. Lowit also memorably portrays the celebrities he befriended―Catherine Deneuve and Paloma Picasso among them―and the models he enlisted to wear his designs: Pat Cleveland, Jerry Hall, Iman, Stella Tennant, Laetitia Casta, and Kate Moss. Perhaps most notably, the tome shows Saint Laurent’s haute-couture and ready-to-wear pieces at their original debuts―a documentation of, and tribute to, the aesthetic transformations he shepherded over the years.”
- Surface

“[Roxanne Lowit] chronicles an iconic designer and an excessive time―the 1970s and ‘80s―with all their flourishes of ruffles, lace, brocade, Frida Kahlo floral headdresses, roses, appliqué―you name it.”
- WAG

“Vibrant, candid photos of the designer and his work from their meeting in 1978 through his last show in 2002.”
- W

“Lowit's photographic authority spans more than two decades and this new offering shows why she was his favorite lenswoman.”
- Art Desk Magazine

“Celebrates Lowit's photography from the height of Saint Laurent's career, including backstage shots of Jerry Hall, Linda Evangelista, Shalon Harlow, and much, much more.”
- New York Magazine: The Cut

“Dazzling.”
- The Society Diaries

“An inside peek into the life of the elusive legend, Lowit's photographs paint the portrait of a man who not only changed the way women dress, but the lives of the women around him as well.”
- The Real Real

“There are already countless reasons to adore Yves Saint Laurent, but fashion photographer Roxanne Lowit captures plenty more in her latest compilation of behind-the-scenes images of the iconic designer throughout his career. Case in point: the fact that for each of his runway shows, the iconic designer embellished his favorite look with a heart-shaped necklace, inspired by one of his early drawings.”
- StyleBistro

“[Roxanne Lowit] single-handedly invented backstage photography and captured the essence of the winning combination that is supermodels and design visionaries....The book is a visual feast.”
- V Magazine

“Nobody can capture the glamorous chaos and style intensity of backstage fashion shows like fashion and celebrity photographer Roxanne Lowit.”
- The Blot Magazine

“A must-have for any fashionista.”
- Windy City Times

“Gives and inside look at [Lowit's] personal photos of the legendary designer and his shows captured from 1978 to his final runway bow in 2002.”
- Harper's Bazaar

“[Lowit's] partnership with designer Yves Saint Laurent began in 1978 and continued through the end of his career, yielding stunning photographs of his couture creations worn by the top models of the day.”
- Architectural Digest

“The photos date from 1978 to Saint Laurent’s finale in 2002 and are very personal, as Lowit was a dear friend of the beloved designer.”
- Second City Style Review

“A perfect marriage of Lowit's ability to capture 'glamorous chaos' with Saint Laurent's ability, no matter what was going on.”
- The San Francisco Chronicle

“The kind of book that provides endless possibilities in terms of multiple readings....A timeline, a diary, a love letter to the designer's career.”
- New York Journal of Books

“Lavish images.”
- Library Journal
