Saint Laurent truly, truly was one of the greats, if not even The Great, of 20th Century fashion, and although the documentary's outlook isn't always glowing (it was made towards the end of his career, as his influence was declining, and shortly before the house was sold off by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé) it offers a tantalising look back to the heyday of Saint Laurent, when his shows really seemed more sensational than anything we see today. Although he rarely speaks to the camera, there is some great footage of Saint Laurent (also look out for Suzy Menkes and Anna Wintour..)
We simply can't state enough how worth watching this is..
We're gushing uncharacteristically now, but he really was such an incredible, rarefied person, whose genius may never be matched, and this documentary serves as a good reminder of that.
