This iconic French design house is renown by an international following for combining elegance, quality and refinement.
YSL Rive Gauche is the ready-to-wear offshoot of Yves Saint Laurent’s couture house. Launched in 1966, the line marked the first effort by a couturier to democratize fashion for the everyday.

The style was available in three sizes (medium, large & oversize). YSL Muse Two was launched in 2008 and in 2011 Yves Saint Laurent introduced its limited edition bag Muse.
