“We must never confuse elegance with snobbery.” -Yves Saint Laurent

“I participated in the transformation of my era. I did it with clothes, which is surely less important than music, architecture, painting … but whatever it’s worth I did it.” -Yves Saint Laurent

“I always believed that style was more important than fashion. They are rare, those who imposed their style while fashion makers are so numerous.” -Yves Saint Laurent

“The most beautiful clothes that can dress a woman are the arms of the man she loves. But for those who haven’t had the fortune of finding this happiness, I am there.” -Yves Saint Laurent
