Sebastian, Spain. By 1937, Paris became home to the famed couturier. In

Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Studded Leather Satchel Bag, Black -
Neiman Marcus: Saint Laurent
bandana-studded calf leather satchel bag. Rolled top handles; flat
shoulder strap. Padlock detail hangs from handle base. Founded in
1961, Yves Saint Laurent was the first
couture house to introduce the concept of luxury pret-a-porter in a 1966
collection called "Rive Gauche," synonymous with youth and freedom. This
shift represented a first critical step in the modernization of fashion
and revolutionized the socio-cultural landscape. In 1999, the luxury
goods division of the PPR Group acquired Yves Saint Laurent and, under
the creative direction of Hedi Slimane since March 2012, continues to
position the house at the summit of the luxury universe. Today, Saint
Laurent collections include women's and men's ready-to-wear, shoes,
handbags, small leather goods, jewelry, scarves, ties, and eyewear.
Parisian by birth and Los Angeleno by choice, Hedi Slimane is lauded not
only for his work as a designer and photographer—but also for his past
contributions during his tenure as menswear director for the house.
