Yves Saint Laurent: Timeless elegance and style

If I had to pick someone stylish around 1967-1972, I would definetly choose Yves Saint Laurent, a man who's a fashion legend and visionary. His personal style around these years was remarkable and at its peak. A style and exquisite taste that was reflected on his menswear Rive Gauche collection.

The key element is this collection was the safari jacket, which I talked about several months ago, and became a 70s menswear staple.
