I like how they have my back with their wide range of products. It doesn’t matter the occasion or season, I know I can get something fashionable from them to wear on special occasions or casual events. The best part is their products are available in YSL boutiques worldwide, Yves Saint Laurent online shop, and at the best department stores.
This fashion brand has a clear commitment to offering luxurious products of high quality yet accessible for most people.
What Do They have in Store?
YSL Fashion & Styles
Yves St Laurent collections include clothing for men and women; fragrances; shoes; ties; and other accessories such as wallets, bags, hats, and scarves. The 60s youth culture mainly inspired their fashion designs.
I like how you can wear their designed clothes with floppy hats; shirts tied at the waist or hanging out of trousers, long coats that are very easy to move in (like a trenchcoat), and slim-fitting pants.
YSL Perfumes & Colognes
Yves St Laurent fragrances are trendy today. Yves Saint Laurant fragrances were the first perfumes to feature “oriental” hefty and musky notes. YSL fragrances also include green accords (notes of grass) like many other French perfume houses, but Yves Saint Laurent’s use was different because he used them in his lighter, more floral women’s scents.
Their fragrances are all trendy and well-loved today. Many famous women have worn Yves Saint Laurent perfumes, such as
- Catherine Deneuve
- Shelley Hack
- Mariah Carey
- Beyonce Knowles
Yves Saint Laurant colognes will make you smell like someone with money and style.
Can The Ordinary Person Afford Them?
Since his retirement, Yves Saint Laurent has continued to be a famous brand, with consumers still willing to pay top dollar for clothes bearing the designer’s name. This has made some of the products to be very costly for the average person. I save up for the items and look out for discounts that they may be having.
Pros And Cons Of YSL Products
- This is a big brand mostly because they have been doing something right over the years. They don’t compromise on the quality of their products. I am guaranteed that the item will give me service until I get tired of it.
- I might be having issues, but there is something about wearing a big brand. It opens a lot of opportunities for you. I get a lot of VIP treatment when I wear their products. Wearing their products increases my confidence and makes me bolder.
Complimentary After Service
- I thought I had to pay more to have a wallet I bought engraved only to find out they would do it for free. Most of their after and extra services are complimentary. Now you know where to get that gift.
- Most of their stores had free samples to give away when I bought something. The free samples made me feel like I was being taken on an in-depth tour to understand better what they have to offer. I had the luxury of choosing which of their samples I wanted.
Discounts and Offers
- They have exclusive offers from time to time. You can access them by signing up online. They will send them to your email, and you will be among the first ones to know about them.
Not for Everyone
- Most of their prices are not affordable to everyone, and I have had to stretch myself financially a couple of times. Some of their fragrances don’t last very long, and you end up using a lot in vain.
YSL has also been an inspiration for many fashion designers, including John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, and Tom Ford, who became Yves Saint Laurent’s creative director. I like how they change with the trend. I know time will not be a factor in their products besides fashion keeps getting repeated. YSL will be maintaining its identity for many years to come.
