In 1950s Paris, Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld were friends, the rising stars of the fashion world. But by the late sixties the city was invaded by a new mood of liberation and hedonism, and dominated by intrigue, infidelities, addiction and parties. This book exposes an era and the story of the two men who were its essence.

Notă biografică

Alicia Drake is a fashion journalist based in Paris. She writes regularly for major publications such as W, International Herald Tribune and Vogue.


In this fascinating read, Drake reveals the fashion industry's constant flux between in and out, right and wrong, and how Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld trod a rivalrous tightrope
This is an extremely readable and impressively researched book
If you have the slightest interest in late-twentieth-century culture, you should read this book
Thoroughly entertaining ... Starting with the student riots of 1968 and ending with the shadow of Aids, this is an important social history
A beautiful insight into the private lives of two people whom I admire so much, particularly Yves Saint Laurent. I would recommend it to anyone interested in fashion
