Yves Saint Laurent, The Lalanne(s) and the Crocodile

"I have a passion for objects depicitng birds and snakes but in real life these animals scare me."

"Some nights its a little unsettling."

Yves Saint Laurent

In 1969 Yves Saint Laurent commissioned the Lalanne(s) to create bronzed body jewelry for the fall collection.  The breast plates worn over cerulean blue silk dresses were poetic, beautiful, tribal and slightly surreal.

Saint Laurent and Pierre BergĂ© collected Francois-Xavier and Claude Lalanne pieces too for their homes.  A flock of sheep so YSL could feel as if he was on a farm in Normandy, a vineyard of vines for the Paris apartment...

Fashion imitates Art, Art imitates Life...
