YSL: The Assurance of Dreams

The setting: Vogue 1976.  

The Description: "It's a dream," my neighbor said.  She was quite literally right.  Dreams are the language of the subconscious and color belongs to the subconscious of Western culture.  Saint Laurent said it took him only three weeks to design this collection and that, for the first time, he was able to set it all down, at once and definitively, in drawings that had the somnambulistic assurance of dreams.
