It was undoubtedly photographer Helmut Newton who made Yves Saint Laurent's 'Le Smoking' iconic; his extraordinary capacity to imbue his subjects with potent sexuality reaching new heights when married to the louche enigma of the YSL tuxedo. Shot for French Vogue in 1975, the story featured an androgynous woman standing in a hazily lit Parisian alleyway, hair slicked back, crisp white cravat, cigarette, entwined with a model dressed only in black stilettos. With stark monochrome simplicity, Newton created a piece of iconography that to this day has never gone out of fashion.
