According to Yves Saint Laurent, people underestimate the importance of accessories – this is the thing that changes attire. “I like simple dresses and crazy accessories”, once he said. For Saint-Laurent, the perfection of the outfit dependeds not so much on clothes as on the correct decoration. For his customers couturier hired famous artists, jewelry designers, and haberdashery craftsmen, who could embody his ideas in perfect shape.
