Always Classic: Yves Saint Laurent

We will be posting some great options for all of your resort needs shortly but in the meantime we were thinking about what to wear as the weather turns a little cooler. We were wondering, what would a style icon like Nan Kempner wear for serving spaghetti at home on a fall Sunday night or for skiing in Gstaad? And then we knew! A crocheted vest from Yves Saint Laurent of course!

From Nan Kempner's personal collection is this wonderful 1970s crocheted vest from Yves Saint Laurent. It is an amazing wearable piece of fashion history from a great couturier and his great patron.

Our second piece of cozy elegance is also from Yves Saint Laurent. From the 1960s this cardigan trimmed with wool fringe and narrow sleeves is a great basic. Just the thing when you are looking for something simple but gorgeous (and a bit of Saint Laurent from the 1960s which is becoming increasingly rare to find).
