So much personality and attitude can be laid in a simple black and white photo! So much seductiveness and style can be felt from a black and white photoshoot! No wonder, no photoshop effects or sparkling shades can ever compete with a simple colorless shoot and of this fact luxurious fashion house Yves Saint Laurent is more than sure. Trying to create the mesmerizing and gorgeous, the brand has launched the newest Saint Laurent spring/summer 2013 campaign, all in black and white photos, or better to say, just blacks.

Mr. Bergé, is it true that you met Yves Saint Laurent for the first time at Christian Dior’s funeral in 1957?
Well, you can see us both in a picture that shows the mourning guests, but in fact I met him on February 3, 1958 during a dinner organized by Marie-Louise Bousquet. I had come to congratulate him a few days after his first collection at Dior was presented. We were living together six months later.
