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.
