One of Saint Laurent’s most recognizable photographs. The designer first appeared as a model for an advertising campaign for his own perfume YSL Pour Homme. They did not want to print photos in magazines, and the fragrance at the same time received a standing ovation and became one of the most popular.

Yves Saint Laurent and his collection, which the fashion designer dubbed “Scandalous.” It really caused a huge resonance: some critics called the images ugly, others, on the contrary, admired the courage and new look of the designer. The Scandal collection includes suits in a men’s style, voluminous shoulders, transparent blouses, fur coats on the naked body, as well as miniskirts and bright makeup. The designer was inspired by German-occupied Paris.

They met in 1968, and a few years later Warhol painted a series of portraits of Yves, whom he considered “the greatest French artist”. The designer also posed for Andy’s camera.
