Inspired by the emblematic creations of Monsieur Saint Laurent, LVDP is a collection of fragrances that each interprets a centrepiece of the couturier's wardrobe.
A new icon is joining Le Vestiaire des Parfums: Capeline. Throughout his career, Yves Saint Laurent would play on the capeline's paradox: a nonchalant way of going incognito that is also the most spectacular of accessories. Worn since the Middle-Ages as a protection against the sun, the wide-brimmed hat sailed from catwalks and garden parties to the glamorous haunts of chic Bohemians in the 1960s. The capeline is crowning a sleek silhouette like a flower on a stem.
To translate capeline's unique sensuality and nonchalance into a fragrance, YSL Beauté chose an iconic flower: the lily. Its majestic bloom inspires the form of an extravagant capeline, and its name in French - Lys - forms the anagram of the couturier's initials. The flower was Yves Saint Laurent's emblem, and even in his absence, every one of his houses were filled with sprigs of Casablanca lilies. By adding vanilla absolute to the fragrance, the perfumer colored the pure white of the lily with a golden patina.
Capeline reveals a sophisticated match between the couture elegance of Yves Saint Laurent’s lucky-charm lily and the sensual nonchalance of vanilla.
