Farewell Pierre Bergé, Yves Saint Laurent Co-Founder

Yves Saint Laurent co-founder Pierre Bergé has died aged 86 years old, 19 years after his parter. The French luxury fashion house was founded in 1961 after Saint Laurent was fired from Dior having been conscripted. Bergé and Saint Laurent went on to create one of the world’s most influential, recognizable and aspirational brands. As Dazed explains, “With Bergé in charge of the business, Yves Saint Laurent revolutionized fashion in the second half of the twentieth century—democratizing the industry by introducing ready-to-wear line YSL Rive Gauche in 1967, reinventing iconic styles such as Le Smoking, Safari dress and the Mondrian dress.” Read more at DazedDigital.
