Six years after his death and Yves Saint Laurent is still one of the most cherished and respected fashion designers of all time. In a tribute to the Le Smoking legend, three books dedicated to the designer will be released on the same night at Colette in Paris. Roxanne Lowit Photographs Yves Saint Laurent (Thames & Hudson), is Roxanne's personal photographic history of the designer. In 1978, she started photographing him in his studio, backstage and with celebrities such as Catherine Deneuve and Betty Catroux. The collaboration ended with Yves' last collection in 2002.
