Stefano Pilati’s final kick at the Yves Saint Laurent can is pretty awesome this season. He’s really gone out with a bang and I miss him already. These Mae Suede and Metal Pumps are just so beautiful and classic.

I’m Still Obsessed with the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Sandals

Yves Saint Laurent is now Saint Laurent Paris and the new website doesn’t have a Tribute shoe anywhere. There are rumour going around that the Tribute Sandal is being discontinued but according to WWD the Tribute line is being reworked and upgraded. I’m still obsessed with them and I hope they are “reworked” too much. With this upcoming design change the urgency to add a pair to my shoe collection has increased.

In 2008 the YSL Tribute Sandals started to become the go to shoe for Editors and Celebrities. In my search for information regarding the Tribute’s entry to the market I came across a lot of celebrity references. Apparently, Julliane Moore was the first celebrity to start wearing them

There are so many colour combinations and leather choices that I’m not particularly picky about which ones I do buy in the end.

I’m not a hot pink person but these are my favourite of the bunch. The purple Tributes are second.

I’m totally obsessed with the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Sandals. Playing in Shrimpton Couture’s Closet has taught me that I need these shoes in my life. A towering platform paired with the ability to match with any outfit, this is perfection. Yves Saint Laurent sandals also come in all the colours of the rainbow. These green leather and coral patent ones are so fun.

Yves Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2011 Ad Campaign Video

I love this ad campaign video for the Yves Saint Laurent spring summer 2011 collection. It was filmed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin with the model Arizona Muse. Mushroom & Roses is the name of the Janelle Monae song in the ad.

The YSL downtown bag is another classic I like. This one is in a pony fabric and that makes it a bit different than the rest.

i got: Framework: The YSL’s by Moxy Creative House

Framework: The YSL's by Moxy Creative House

I really liked the Moxy Creative House’s Framework. It’s a series of prints celebrating some iconic eyewear of celebrities like Warhol, Johnny Depp, Kurt Cobain, Shock G of Digital Underground, Truman Capote, Geordi LaForge and Malcolm X.  I really liked the YSL version so I ordered the poster sized print.

One of the most revered designers of all time, Yves Saint Laurent demonstrated a deeper understanding of aesthetic when he said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” This could be no truer than when looking at the man himself, a veritable icon of style. The man understood that even a simple pair of black frames can inform who we are, and more importantly, who we want to be.(source)

You can purchase this print or others online at Moxy Creative House.
