All access pass into the world of haute couture
Yves Saint Laurent, the documentary by David Teboul. All access pass into the world of haute couture.
Safari. Vivid blue-greens. The ethnic bold necklace. Espadrilles. The perfect wedge. The brilliant mix of masculine and feminine. Animal prints. Wide leg pants.
Spring trends 2005, yes.
Signatures of Yves Saint Laurent, more so.
For every fashion person who wants the up close and personal insight to the man behind the genius and the genius behind the man, YVES St. LAURENT: HIS LIFE AND TIMES and 5, AVENUE MARCEAU, two feature-length documentaries both directed by David Teboul, lend an insider eye to the daily routine and beginning of one of the most revered, iconic fashion designer and couturier of the twentieth century.
Perhaps, not for those solely interested in the record speed of the next fashion fad or the easy accessibility of high/low fashion .
Fortuitously, all the fashionistas who appreciate the art of construction and the process of great design from sketch to runway, will be captivated by 5, AVENUE MARCEAU and find it to be both a privilege and a treat to be allowed into Mr. Saint Laurent’s inner circle if merely to observe Catherine Deneuve in a couture fitting.
