Beat look

   This look was popularized by Yves Saint Laurent in the 1960s. He drew his inspiration from Paris streetwear: leather, turtlenecks, and short skirts, all in black. Saint Laurent broke from tradition and caused a stir with his new look. His commitment to have women be a part of the change as opposed to be a product of change was more than the House of Dior could bear. Saint Laurent soon departed Dior to create fashion under his own label.
