The creative energy behind an assistant in the House of Dior, subsequently flourished into becoming the top and lead designer of this prestigious couture fashion at the unheard age of 21 in 1957.

Yves Saint Laurent took the near bankrupt fashion design house, after Dior´s death, and saved it from its demise in the Spring 1958 collection. This feat ultimately formulated Yves Saint Laurent into a legendary designer in the fashion industry under his own name.

YSL asserted style inspiration that was out of the box, and many consider his designs ultimate for the eclectic fashionista. The creativity from the House of Yves Saint Laurent is indisputable.

Laurent was the "superstar" of the media and more accessible as a public image than other fashion designers had been. He was photographed constantly with celebrities and was well known for "jet-set" parties and dancing the night away at Studio 54 in New York City or Jimmy Z´s in Monte Carlo.

Some of the best designer handbags for women in town are an YSL.   Yves Saint Laurent devoted time to produce four separate collections in the designer handbag market, with the "Tribute" swaying to be the most popular.

Yves Saint Laurent passed away in 2008. Based on photographs of his designs and life in the fast lane, a "Tribute" derived on his designs from the past was launched. The signature design of the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute tote is desired by women for not only its good looks but its functional performance. Cameron Diaz carries her Yves Saint Laurent Tribute tote repeatedly, as does Halle Berry and Kristen Davis.

An authentic Yves Saint Laurent "Tribute" handbag combines the spirit of the YSL heyday of the past with the savoir faire of the 21st century. The pre-owned "Tribute" handbag will never fail to convey sophistication and adds an elegant finishing touch to any ensemble.

The authentic Yves Saint Laurent "Tribute" tote is presented in striking nude patent leather with gorgeous detailing. It has a magnetic snap closure with two YSL embossed zippers on the sides.

Hardware consists of gold-tone studs and ring accents on a 8 ½ inch length double leather straps. The exterior is done in fabulous top-stitching detail with a leather detachable name tag with stitched "Y" logo.  The interior of the authentic Yves Saint Laurent Tribute handbag is so spacious, that even small packages will fit into it. It is fully-lined in satin fabric with a zippered compartment and an additional pocket just for a cell phone.

The authentic pre-owned Yves Saint Laurent Tribute tote is undoubtedly a tribute to the legacy of YSL. It extends a very edgy image that would by no means anything less than a classic.
