Another passing

One of the earliest designer marks I can remember noticing as a kid was the YSL of Yves Saint Laurent, so I suppose it's no surprise that he was getting quite old. CNN just sent out a breaking news alert that French media are saying he passed away; I'm finding suggestions that he actually died yesterday, not today.

His fashion design career goes back over fifty years, though I recall he retired about five years ago. He either died in his home after a long illness, or of injuries sustained in a skydiving accident, depending on which sources you believe. :-)
