The history of Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior fashion houses are closely interwoven, in fact Saint Laurent was recognized by Dior for his amazing design talent at the tender age of just 18. He spent several years under the watchful eye of Christian Dior himself and by the age of 21 unexpectedly became the head of Christian Dior.
Later in life Yves Saint Laurent went on to create his very own Fashion Empire and has since been known as one the greatest ever names in fashion. His bags were famed for a Paris like chic feel with beautifully soft leathers with exceptional detailing, but also a modern vibe with chunky chains as handles and straps. An eclectic mix of style which is undoubtedly Saint Laurent yet is often copied by other designers.
