as you may know... with Hedi Slimane taking over Yves Saint Laurent, they have rebranded to simply 'Saint Laurent'. This sweater from NYC-based What About Yves is in reference to this (somewhat) historical happening in fashion.

LOVE THE IRONY OF THE PULLOVER. Not loving the bowtie with it. Shoes and pants could've been rocked more too. Think about it, think, my dear friend.
Matthew Brooks
totally respect different opinions.
the shoes are my favourite pair of beautiful brown leather vintage oxfords.. and the pants I custom tailored by hand with suede patches. so I am still happy with my choices.
thanks for the discussion though!

So what is your style what makes it different?
Matthew Brooks
I like to present looks that are inspired by a time period, a movie, a novel.. etc. I like to present fashion with a story and a distinct voice that goes beyond clothing.
Jenniah  Temple
Omg yes I totally understand that is so unique!
