As we mentioned in an earlier post and if you have seen our windows lately, it is all about Yves Saint Laurent. With Hedi Slimane recently revealing he will bring back couture at YSL and the name change for the ready-to-wear into Saint Laurent Paris, with his menswear and women's cruise 2013 collection going on show only to buyers, the anticipation is palpable. For decades Yves Saint Laurent was one of the world's most prominent couturiers, and from the house's golden couture days we bring this luxurious caftan style gown. It is indeed a masterpiece. From the chiffon flowing to the lavender and green print reminiscent of the Majorelle Garden which was both home and source of inspiration for Yves, this piece shows the genius of imagination within the framework of one simple shape. 
Inspired by what was only supposed to be for the husband's eyes, since a caftan like this had to be covered by a djellaba outside the home, Saint Laurent transformed and adopted north African vibes into 
modern and sensual creations. Here is something to cherish as we wait to see what will the new couture days of YSL be. Own it and wear it somewhere special.
