"A well-timed and focused insight into Yves’ own studio and its inner workings."

Words by

Giulia Brugliera

Be it via biography, memoir or documentary, insight into the old days of luxury fashion is so hot right now.

And with two biopics released last year – not to mention the controversial dropping of ‘Yves’ – it seems the house of Saint Laurent is attracting a whole lot of attention.

Cue Mirrors and Secrets, a well-timed and focused insight into Yves’ own studio and its inner workings. Despite its brevity and pocket size, the book offers an in-depth look at the famed studio, complete with unpublished photographs, sketches and personal quotes from the designer.

It seems it really ain’t Laurent without Yves.
