YVES SAINT LAUREN

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES - Now show­ing State Cin­ema

THEY say clothes maketh the man. But what of the man who maketh the clothes? That’s one ques­tion that won’t be an­swered by a dis­ap­point­ingly su­per­flu­ous biopic of the late French de­sign icon Yves Saint Lau­rent. Fashionistas will feel par­tic­u­larly ag­grieved by the unattrac­tive out­come achieved here, par­tic­u­larly as there’s only a hand­ful of scenes de­pict­ing the haute cou­ture high- flyer in the near vicin­ity of dresses to die for. As for how Saint Lau­rent ac­quired his rare talent, well, the film doesn’t bother let­ting you in on that lit­tle se­cret, ei­ther. Cu­ri­ously, the best mo­ments hap­pen while Saint Lau­rent is still in the em­ploy of the House of Dior and yet to start his own fa­mous la­bel. Stars Pierre Niney.
