c’est magnifique!

paris 1962: yves saint laurent & dior, the early collections

i always find myself searching for this beautiful art book in shops, just to thumb through the pages once more (border’s, anthropologie, etc.)  … it’s really more of a photography book than one for fashion fanatics.

i love the time period and mood of the photos more than anything. they exude mystery, warmth, aristocracy, sentimentality, & all through that very french-inspired/audrey hepburn look. 

although each photo is in black & white, you hardly notice the lack of color, as the many shades of grey create a color palette of their own. SO marvelous!
