Erich Biehle – Yves Saint Laurent

Erich Biehle (b. 1941) designed this hand-printed silk scarf after having already been responsible for Yves Saint Laurent’s first scarf collection as a designer at L. Abraham + Co. Seiden AG in Zurich. The strict geometric composition is rarely seen as it is here but rather falls in soft folds when worn and is thus transformed into a loose pattern. The eye-catching label marks the wearer as the owner of a YSL piece. Biehle successfully used both design features for numerous YSL silk scarves.
