Goofs

YSL's black leather Beat collection is shown as having been created in 1964 in the film, suggesting YSL was a leader of the Mod look of the mid 1960s, but in fact his Beat collection was done in 1960 and was too youthful for Dior clientele at the time and the main reason YSL was fired from Dior.

A fitting tribute to the great man of fashion
22 April 2014 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The young up and coming executive of a fashion house who became an industry icon himself.

In this biopic, we are treated to a rather different angle of the legendary designer. We follow his early steps in the world of fashion and how his vision guided him and his unremittingly uncompromising personality made him a stand out. Like all 'celebrities' it was rather sad to see him fall into the alcohol and drugs trap but it was the love of someone else that kept him steady, possible saving from altogether destruction.

Being so open about his homosexuality in such puritanical times was also refreshing to see.

Overall, whilst it might not be a masterpiece of a movie, but still it has style, class and panache to make it a memorable experience even a fitting tribute to this great man of fashion.
