INFO

First monograph dedicated to fashion icon Betty Catroux Ÿ?? Icon of the 2020 Yves Saint Laurent exhibition at the Museum Yves Saint Laurent, Paris. Luxuriously bound and printed the book presents photographs and includes quotes from both Yves Saint Laurent and Betty Catroux - "You represent for me not only love but independent elegance" - (A letter from Yves Saint Laurent to Betty Catroux) - selected by Anthony Vaccarello. Betty Catroux, Yves Saint Laurent's female double, embodies in the couturier's eyes the androgynous woman and a certain feminine ideal. She personified, better than anyone else, the fascinating enigma of Saint Laurent and his long silhouettes. One of his closest friends, she was the only model able to keep prototypes from each collection. A selection of 1,200 pieces she has just donated to the Yves Saint Laurent Museum.?˜
