    You will enjoy it, Label King. It's dense, but extremely well done.

    I understand it mentions Jacques de Bascher de Beaumarchais, the rather enigmatic aesthete who although had no particular talent, was a muse to Lagerfeld, and Saint Laurent.

    Label King . . . Jacques de Bascher figures PROMINENTLY, in this book! I never knew anything about him, before I read 'The Beautiful Fall.'

    There appears a [picture of him lying in the gutter in today's UK Daily Telegraph.

    This so-called fashion guru can be seen wearing a pair pair trousers with belt loops but no belt and CLIP ON braces (suspenders).

    Perhaps he talks too much....

    Label King, another YSL memento that you would enjoy: The Life and Times of Yves Saint Laurent. DVD version, available at amazon.com. Chronicles the creation of one of Saint Laurent's final couture collections. Along with everything else, it's amazing to realize how quickly his atelier got these staggering collections of clothes, produced!! Just the accessories, were enough to fill a large room. Boxes and boxes, all numbered and tied in ribbon. Truly inspirational to see.
