Yves Saint Laurent Sunglasses – Perfection from the Late Couturier

Yves Saint Laurent was a men of style. He was very opinionated men and self-conscious, which was a good thing at the time. It helped him to revolutionize fashion. On most of the pictures that survived today Yves is wearing thick black glasses of a rectangular shape. And while many trends in glasses went on and off, thick plastic black glasses never left the trend. This what Yves believed in, it will be trendy while you choose to wear it, once you put something else on – it will take over. Yves Saint Laurent sunglasses is no exception. They are very bold and all share similar style. You can almost look on one pair without staring at the logo and say “This is YSL”. Check these out:

Yves Saint Laurent Sketches

Yves Saint Laurent was a true master of sketches. He is known to draw not only for work, but also casually as a hobby. Just recently Voque magazine published an article about ongoing fight between two former lovers of Yves over the 300 sketches that are about to get exhibited. Apparently many of the sketches are erotic. But when it came down to Yves Saint Laurent work sketches, there was nothing erotic. In fact, his women models were always very serious, workaholic looking and a bit manly. Hence is his most famous invention – pant suit for a woman. There are thousands of Yves Saint Laurent sketches survived today. We can see that when new collection was planned Yves would produce dozens versions of a sketch to experiment with fabric, silhouettes or clothing combinations.

Buying Sunglasses as a Present for a Mother. Tips from Tiffany 2012

Buying a gift for your mother is always a challenge. Many mothers won’t admit what they really want, they don’t want to tell their children to spend any money on their gifts. In retrospect, mother will be very proud with a gift from her son or daughter and always mention the gift to her friends. Getting her sunglasses as a present is a good idea. Not only it will show that you care for how she looks, it will show that you care for her health. When buying sunglasses as a gift for your mom, follow these simple tips:

1. Get conventional shape

You don’t want to play trendy when getting sunglasses for your mom’s gift. Clearly you don’t know what she might like. Unless she specifically pointed to you that she likes that one pair in the store, just get her classy rectangular or oval shaped sunglasses. These Tiffany’s will be a good choice:

Today fashion world is mad about minimalism. It even may be something you like to wear. Simple cut, monotone color… Sunglasses for your mom can’t be simple. Remember it is a gift. It will be something she’ll cherish for the rest of her life. Make sure your gift has nice details, crystals, flowers, nice decorations. For example:

3. Pay attention what she wears today

If you mother already has one or two pairs of sunglasses, even very old ones, take a note of what it is. She may even have her favorite pair that she wears all the time. Depending on how old is your mom, she may have a pair that is from 70’s, even 60’s. Don’t worry, luckily today, you can find a pair from any era. These are inspired by 70’s style:

4. Remember, low key does not mean boring

When you are getting sunglasses for your mom as a gift, while sticking to classic designs as much as possible, you don’t need to be extreme. Sunglasses will look good only when they are updated, current and new in all regards. Of course brand image will play a key role in this. Certain brand names are geared more toward teenagers, such as Marc Jacobs or Ray Ban. Others, more towards mature people. Tiffany is perfect for mature women. Every single pair will be appropriate for your mom.

5. Trust your feelings

If you see something on the shelf and feel very strongly about it, go for it. In the end it is gift from you for your beloved mom. If you are strongly opinionated and believe your mom needs a pair of aviators, no problem. Or perhaps she is ready for a pair of butterfly shaped sunglasses just trust yourself and get her this. Tiffany ensured that even aviators are classy, elegant and chic.

6. Packaging is also important

In today’s material world packaging often becomes as important and it’s content. The moment of unwrapping a gift is quite indulging and pleasurefull. But Tiffany took packaging a step further. Their blue box is a true icon. There were countless movies made showing Tiffany blue box with white ribbon. Believe it or not, Tiffany sunglasses packaging is just as awesome as engagement rings. It also has a blue box, shiny blue hard case and silky blue cotton cloth. Packaging alone is worth getting Tiffany’s for a gift.
