Legendary high-fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent passed away in Paris today, June 1, at the age of 71. Holy City Style would like to ask for a moment of web silence for this talented man as we take a retrospective glance at some of his most famous designs.

1965, Mondrian cocktail dress

1968, YSL’s take on pantsuit ensembles

1975, “Le Smoking” women’s tuxedo, as famously photographed by Helmut Newton

1980, Gilt embroidered black silk gazar

2001, Evening ensemble

Though Yves passed on, his luxury label and vintage designs live on. For his full obituary, visit USA Today.
