worlwide - i know i never knew the man...but months of researching his history and collections almost made me feel like i did. saint laurent lived a full and marvelous life and made an impact on the fashion world from the most elite levels onward. he died sunday night at his home. he was 71 years old. his business associate pierre berge (himself a legend) said to french radio, "There are not that many people in the pantheon of fashion. There will be two who will undeniably remain -- one who symbolized the first part of the 20th century, and that's Chanel, and the other one who will symbolize the second part of the 20th century, and that's Yves Saint Laurent." i could not agree more. more deets to come as they emerge. this is truly the end of era.
