Yves Saint Laurent & his Muses: Loulou de la Falaise and Betty Catroux

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.
