YSL: In his own Words
"One day, my name will be written in flaming letters on the Champs-Elysées."
"What I want: to shock people, to force them to think. Young people have no memories."
"Elegance is a dress too dazzling to dare to wear it twice. I like eccentricity, everything that is fun, the unexpected."
"I chose this pant suit in my last collection; it is a real men’s suit to represent the women of the future. I think that in twenty years it will still be just right."
"Before, I used only dark tones. Then Morocco came along with its colors… those of the earth and the sand. But also those in the street: women in turquoise and mauve caftans… and the sky."
