"Women who follow fashion too closely run a great risk. That of losing their profound nature, their style, and their natural elegance."
Yves Saint Laurent
Katie and I sell vintage clothing because we are passionate about quality, sustainability and individuality. Modig means "brave" in Swedish and we champion the idea that no trend is more impressive than an original expression of a personal point of view in fashion. Our whole Modig team finds inspiration in people who wear what they love on their own terms. Yves Saint Laurent epitomized that philosophy.
Yves Saint Laurent was a true fashion pioneer who not only empowered women with his designs, he created clothing that would last. YSL pieces are just as relevant today as they were 50 years ago.
Vintage cream organza YSL bolero evening jacket
Of all of the designer pieces we have sold over the years, we can say that Yves Saint Laurent's are some of the finest made. The fabrics are better than any you can find on the market today, the style is timeless, the colors remain vibrant without losing their luster, and the pieces were tailored to actually fit well.
When you try on a piece like the cream organza bolero above, you will be transported to another world. The perfect gathers, luxurious fabric and impeccable tailoring are pure magic.
"Don't burn your wings at fashion's flame."Yves Saint Laurent
By choosing to shop sustainably and by selecting colors, styles, and fabrics that work best on our own unique bodies, we are making choices that social media and fashion publications are constantly trying to take away. By ignoring trends and wearing what makes us feel the most like ourselves, we reclaim our power. When you choose YSL vintage pieces, you can easily style them to feel completely modern and accessorize them make them look more contemporary.
We have all benefited from Yves Saint Laurent's perfectionism and his supernatural ability to translate an inspiration into reality. The extravagant costumes of the Ballet Russes, the rich colors of Morocco, utilitarian military or safari clothing, modern art, music, exotic locations around the world, and even his own personal muses, all inspired Yves Saint Laurent to create beautiful fashion that gave women all around the world permission to dream bigger.
"Finding your own style is not easy. But once found, it brings happiness. It gives you self confidence.."Yves Saint Laurent
