Who Was Yves Saint Laurent? As a teen, Yves Saint Laurent left Algeria for Paris to work for designer Christian Dior and gained acclaim for his dress designs. In 1966, he launched his own fashion labels, where his adaptations of tuxedos for women garnered him fame. Yves Saint Laurent, in full Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint Laurent, (born August 1, 1936, Oran, Algeria—died June 1, 2008, Paris, France), French fashion designer noted for his popularization of women’s trousers for all occasions. He was ordered to serve in the French Army during the Algerian War of Independence and received bad reviews from the press and clients for his 1960 collection for Dior—he introduced a leather jacket for haute couture—which resulted in his termination from Dior. Yves Saint Laurent – The fashion house, founded in 1961 by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Berge, was acquired by the Gucci Group in 1999. The Gucci Group purchased Sanofi Beaute, owner of the Yves Saint Laurent brand, from PPR, which had purchased it 5 years earlier, for about $1 billion. Founded in 1961, Yves Saint Laurent is a French luxury fashion house and Kering’s second-largest brand. … Yves Saint Laurent’s current success can be attributed in part to diversification, from ready-to-wear to leather goods, premium sneakers, eyewear and more.
