Yves Saint Laurent opened on September 10, 1969 his London boutique. For this important occasion, he was joined by two of his longtime friends and muses: Betty Catroux and Loulou de la Falaise (who died just two days ago; November 5, 2011). Worth noticing is the fact that the 3 of them wore Safari Jackets created by Yves Saint Laurent, each with a different twist.
Yves opted to wear a head to toe Safari ensemble which was accessorized with a scarf and a braided leather belt, while Betty Catroux wore a very feminine and modern jacket designed by YSL in 1968. Loulou de la Falaise wore her Safari jacket combining it with a modern gypsy look with a head scarf and midi skirt. Definitely 3 style icons.
