    Yves could exorcise certain of his demons. Yves nearly burnt himself alive – as in all exorcisms. But it is not Jacques who took him there. It is the profound nature of Yves. Jacques was only the instrument.’

    And indeed long after the affair was over, the idea of Jacques continued to be a source of pain that Yves could exploit. ‘I saw Jacques today,’ he would say for years afterwards, inventing the lie with which to torment Pierre Bergé.

    there were also hints of the power Yves could wield through this shyness.

    15 September 1982, after six months of seething gossip and stealth, the announcement came: Karl Lagerfeld was going to design for Chanel. Twenty-eight years after he had stood for that one precious moment on a level with Yves Mathieu-Saint-Laurent and his shining destiny, Karl had finally caught up. He was forty-nine years old

    ‘Elegance,’ said the breathless teenage Yves, ‘is a dress too dazzling to dare to wear twice.’

    m not sure that the new Armani or the new Ralph Lauren will be possible in the future. I think designers now have gotten used to putting themselves behind the label, the way Tom [Ford] has. It doesn’t have to be “my house, my name, my label, it will die with me”. That’s not modern,’ said Karl recently. His legacy will be more in the attitude than the line, something he recognised long ago.

    Karl Lagerfeld must be credited with having the intelligence and sheer courage to lead an epoch in fashion that is not, in terms of age group and generation, rightfully his own.

    Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Viktor and Rolf, and Ralph Lauren are just some of the designers who have referenced Yves in their work and who owe a huge debt of inspiration to his œuvre. That is the way Saint Laurent’s work lives on, resurfacing elsewhere.

    Yves Saint Laurent survived in fashion on the strength of what he created. He invented a style and, when there was no more to invent, he set about perfecting it.

    Suzy Menkes called his 2003 summer collection, marking twenty years at the house of Chanel, ‘the most beautiful collection he has done for the house’ and a ‘magical blend of the fresh and the precious’. ‘Karl is like a great wine,’ says Chanel vice-chairman Arie Kopelman, ‘he just keeps on getting better.’ As do Chanel sales

    Significantly it is in the last years that Karl has produced some of his greatest couture collections for the house of Chanel.

    fit into the clothes designed by Hedi Slimane, who is not only the menswear designer for the house of Christian Dior, but also a close friend of Karl’s since 2001. Slimane began his career at the house of Yves Saint Laurent designing menswear in 1997. He is intense, uncommonly shy, tall and introverted with a driving will-power.
