Vintage YSL Sunglasses and YSL Glasses Frames
Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent was born in Algeria during the French occupation in 1936 and he was a design prodigy – At the age of 17 he moved to Paris and after showcasing his sketches to the editor of French Vogue, Michel De Brunhoff, he began a whirlwind career in fashion.
At the tender age of 21, Yves Saint Laurent became the Creative Director at Christian Dior upon his passing and his very first collection, Ligne Trapéze, set the stage for his ground-breaking career. Yves Saint Laurent is credited as the father of ready-to-wear fashion and his design aesthetic was always based upon producing beautiful clothes that would make your confidence sky-high! This philosophy was carried over into his accessory designs launched in the 1970s and our collection of vintage Yves Saint Laurent sunglasses and glasses frames are an instant ego boost.
Vintage Yves Saint Laurent eyewear is characterised by refined elegance and meticulous attention to detail that you simply don’t find with modern eyewear. Featuring the iconic YSL interlocking logo designed by Cassandre on the temples a pair of vintage Yves Saint Laurent eyeglasses are instantly recognisable.
Yves Saint Laurent was always a champion of diversity and androgyny in his work and he shocked the fashion establishment with his revolutionary take on women’s fashion. YSL is widely credited with making trouser suits, reefer jackets, jumpsuits and the sheer blouse a regular part of a modern women’s wardrobe.
