On May 12th, the Cornette de Saint-Cyr house will be selling the legendary wardrobe of the one that embodied, her whole life, the French elegance and was one of the iconic figures of fashion since the mid 1960. The dispersion of the wardrobe of Helene Rochas is an event with more that 200 pieces including 80% of creations by Yves Saint Laurent, whom she was so close to. In an interview given to Vogue magazine in 1995, she also said of him that he was “the only one who managed to combine both the creative spirit of haute couture and this desire of typical simplification of the modern woman (…) For a fashion designer, the harder it is not to add embroidery here and there, a print here and there. The hard part is to limit yourself. ”
