An exclusive homage to – and retrospective of – the iconic fashion designer's couture accessories.

'One can never overstate the importance of accessories. They are what turns a dress into something else. I like dresses to be sober and accessories to be wild', Yves Saint Laurent, 1977.

Yves Saint Laurent Accessories is the first book to date to shed light on the breathtaking accessories created by one of the most influential fashion designers of all time. From his first collection in 1962 to his acclaimed final presentation in 2002, Yves Saint Laurent created exquisite jewellery, hats, shoes, and handbags to complement and enhance each of his couture creations. Beautifully designed, in a small format evocative of a jewellery box, the book offers an unprecedented glimpse into the highly confidential archives of The Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in Paris, which is home to over 20,000 remarkable accessories. The book features specially commissioned photography of the accessories alongside a treasure trove of rare materials including preparatory sketches, intimate portraits of Saint Laurent at work, behind-the-scenes snapshots of models, catwalk photographs, and advertising campaigns. Yves Saint Laurent Accessories introduces readers to a prominent yet rarely seen side of Saint Laurent's art, leading them backstage and through the history of a house that helped to shape the course of fashion.

Review:

"Saint Laurent remained a loyal lover of accessories. This new artbook dives into the Saint Laurent archive and, through sketches, Polaroids and catwalk shots, documents the master designer's skill. There are his jewel-encrusted crosses, shoes decorated with monster flowers and lots and lots of gold buttons. It's a jewel of a book." —The Guardian

"My accessories are like gestures. A scarf to play with, a shoulder bag that frees the hands, a soft belt – a chain, always – that sublimates the sway of the hips." —Yves Saint Laurent

"The most important designer of the 20th century. He invented so many codes of modern elegance. He watched so much change in society." —Valérie Hermann

"Brought popular culture, a mannish swagger, sexual power, and ethnic awareness to fashion. He gave women a wardrobe that spoke of confidence and authority." —Washington Post

"Part photographic journal, part behind-the-scenes diary... [A] treasure-trove of a book... An inspiration - and a must for fashionistas."—The Lady

"A rare glimpse into the closely guarded archives of the master couturier's jewellery, hats, belts, gloves, shoes and handbags... The 400-page tome pictures itself as a deep blue jewellery box, looking at Saint Laurent's accessories thematically: hand, staging, impressions of Africa, hybrid motifs and good-luck charms."—HungerTV.com

"[A] lavish new hardcover book... The first to shed light on the one-of-a-kind accessories Saint Laurent created... The result is an intimate look at one of fashion's most influential designers and the noteworthy accessories that continue to inspire the industry today."—Vogue Online

"The first book dedicated to the accessories produced by the progressive couturier, this compact, sapphire-colored tome (which itself evokes a jewelry box) is filled with the house's exquisite accessory confections from 1962-2002."—WWD

"Documents the extravagance and diversity of the designer's jewellery creations... There are sections devoted to golden ears of corn, hearts, crosses, doves, butterflies and feathers, bows, shells and coral, which capture creations ranging from the ornamental to the abstract, the modern to the theatrical, the graphic to the gilded... Throughout the image-led volume, Mauriès offers an insight into the mindset behind Yves Saint Laurent's approach to jewellery design."—Wallpaper.com
