About Saint Laurent's Rive Gauche:

On September 19, 1966, Yves Saint Laurent opened a ready-to-wear boutique in Paris called “Saint Laurent Rive Gauche.” This marked the first time a couturier successfully launched a ready-to-wear line in France. Situated in a former antiques store in the student-dominated area of the Seine’s Left Bank, the appropriately named store (Rive Gauche is literally “left bank” in French) was a complete departure from the grand and gilded interior of his haute couture salon. Rive Gauche was an immediate success, with some customers waiting up to three hours to purchase items. Within a matter of weeks, it was clear Rive Gauche was the new sanctum of Paris youth culture.

(...) during the 1970s, Rive Gauche was the site of Saint Laurent’s most prolific creative production. It was a laboratory of sorts, where he could experiment freely with different styles, looks, and sources of inspiration, away from the pressures of the haute couture salon.

Fit:

Prior to buying, please take your measurements or the measurements of a similar garment that fits you well. We take great care in taking all the measurements needed to ensure that it is the right size and fit for you.

When a garment is shown on a model, their measurements are listed to give an idea of how it will fit you. 

All measurements are taken when the fabric is not stretched, though we will also give the extra inches when it is stretched (for example, if a range of measurements is listed, it is because the fabric may stretch to encompass multiple sizes).
