The signature of Yves Saint Laurent is the label's use of androgyny, blending masculine and feminine elements of design to outstanding, innovative effect. Since its founding in 1961 by Algerian designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé, the famous fashion house has used these trademark concepts to break boundaries and reinvent fashion rules. Today, they offer broad ranges of ready-to-wear apparel, footwear and beauty products under the name of Saint Laurent. In definitive Saint Laurent style, this range of flat shoes by the label ranges from the iconic patent leather brogue to the ever-so-feminine, delicate summer sandal. With touches of metallic opulence, edgy studs and chains, the collection is peppered with androgyny, creating flat shoes that exude the classic Saint Laurent grace.
