Pretty much from the moment Dior’s precocious protogé Yves Saint Laurent launched his own line in 1961, he was the darling of the fashion in-crowd. YSL’s signature designs include feminine twists on masculine classics (like tuxedos and pant suits), and retro looks inspired by the ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s. Since 2004, the line has been headed up by Stephano Pilati, who lead a sexy revamp of the Left Bank flagship store shortly after taking the helm; expect a mix of the classic (historic stonework) with the new and exotic (vivid red lacqured walls and Asian-inspired furnishings).
