Colouring Couture

Did you love to colour as a little girl? I did.

Well, get out your crayons because here is a colouring book that will be fun for fashionistas.

The Yves Saint Laurent Coloring Book is filled with previously unpublished YSL sketches. The line drawings of the famous designer’s dresses are accompanied by coloured photos of the original fashions for reference. So you can recreate the designer’s vision or come up with your own inventive colour combinations. Think of it as a form of chic meditation/relaxation/therapy.

Within the 48 pages, the creative genius of Yves Saint Laurent intersects with the fascinating worlds of Pop Art, Mondrian, harlequins, The Carnival of Venice, and the cultures of Asia, Africa, and beyond. Not just a book for colouring enthusiasts, it  also explores a bit of fashion history, art, culture, and the artistry of one of the world’s greatest fashion designers.
