Goofs

YSL's black leather Beat collection is shown as having been created in 1964 in the film, suggesting YSL was a leader of the Mod look of the mid 1960s, but in fact his Beat collection was done in 1960 and was too youthful for Dior clientele at the time and the main reason YSL was fired from Dior.

Skimming stones
19 March 2015 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the life of the great French fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent, concentrating on his youthful but turbulent years in Paris and Morocco.

"Yves Saint Laurent" has certainly a lot of beautiful clothes and beautiful people, but it's not enough to be a good biographical film. The story is presented as a recollection from Mr Berge's perspective, with him occasionally narrating to fill in the gaps. The story runs too fast for viewers to gain understanding with the eventful life of Yves Saint Laurent, and the story does not dive deep enough for any emotional connection to occur. Events are not presented in an engaging manner. I guess that's a necessary evil for a biographical film because compressing years into less than two hours is not an easy job. Skimming stones is quite expected.
