Fashion is Danger

YSL Cigarettes

I was reading up on this week’s auction of the contents of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé’s country home. I was even gonna make a post about it so I was looking for images to illustrate my meanderings.

Anyway, Google Image Search reminded me that the Saint Laurent logo graces cigarettes in Europe. Not only can you get YSL’s you can get Cartier cigarettes as well. I know smoking is not good, but it looks cool.

Did you know that at some point Pierre Cardin, Givenchy, Versace and Christian Lacroix have leant their name to ciggies?

I am telling you because I feel the need to justify the time I spent in the rabbit hole of typing “designer name” + “Cigarettes” into Google Search
