About

'Yves Saint Laurent' 1974 by Giancarlo Botti Portrait of the famous late Yves Saint Laurent, fashion designer for Christian Dior and soon after his own fashion labels. Beautiful large silver gelatin print measuring 20x24" inches / 51 x 61 cm's paper size. Certificate of authenticity included. EDGE PRINTS stamped. Biography : Yves Henri Donat Matthieu Saint Laurent was born on August 1, 1936, in Oran, Algeria, to Charles and Lucienne Andrée Mathieu-Saint-Laurent. He grew up in a villa by the Mediterranean with his two younger sisters, Michelle and Brigitte. While his family was relatively well off—his father was a lawyer and insurance broker who owned a chain of cinemas—childhood for the future fashion icon was not easy. Saint Laurent was not popular in school, and was often bullied by schoolmates for appearing to be homosexual. As a consequence, Saint Laurent was a nervous child, and sick nearly every day. He found solace, however, in the world of fashion. He liked to create intricate paper dolls, and by his early teen years he was designing dresses for his mother and sisters. At the age of 17, a whole new world opened up to Saint Laurent when his mother took him to Paris for a meeting she'd arranged with Michael de Brunhoff, the editor of French Vogue. EDGE PRINTS stamped. We ship regularly using Fedex Express services and shipping to all international locations is complimentary.
