From his inaugural collection in 1962 to his final presentation in 2002, Yves Saint Laurent conceived one-of-a-kind accessories to complement his legendary couture clothing.
Designed and edited in close collaboration with the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent, Yves Saint Laurent Accessories is the only book to date to shed light on the exquisite and rarely documented jewellery, hats, shoes, and handbags that elevated the outfits created by one of the most influential fashion designers of all time.
