50 archive pieces, “represent my life, happiness and independence”

 

Yasmin Le Bon, supermodel and muse of the most important designers in the world, and wife since 1985 of Simon Le Bon, leader of Duran Duran, from whom she has three daughters Amber Rose, Saffron Sahara and Tallulah Pine, after 30 years of career in fashion gets rid of his memories of a career during which the top model of Iranian origins (his surname is Parvaneh) posed for the covers of over 300 fashion magazines and marched for the most important brands with the other supermodels of the time, by Naomi Campbell Claudia Schiffer, quickly becoming the favorite model of designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Alaia, Donna Karen, Gianni Versace and Calvin Klein.

Yasmin has sold her “beloved” designer clothes and accessories.

Reflecting on her 30 years in fashion and having built a real collection over time, Yasmin proclaims herself “fashion lover” to the point where she often takes pieces from her wardrobe just to look at them and admire them for a few moments: “for me they are authentic pieces ‘art”.

There are 50 archive pieces for sale, unique or rare archival pieces (between the 90s and early 2000s) by Maison Margiela, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jeremy Scott, Vivienne Westwood and other designers who had changed their vision in those years of fashion.

“Sure -rivela Yasmin – I’m sad to think that many pieces of my collection will not belong to me anymore, but it’s the right thing to do … Those clothes represent some periods of my life, times of happiness and independence. clothes and all the stories they could tell … Now my life has changed and I’m not showing them as much as I used to be … I think the two purple pieces of knitted Alaia is a super special item: Azzedine gave it to me personally. season had been extraordinary, there was nothing else around like that and I do not think many have been produced, but I just want it to be worn and still alive “.

To celebrate this collaboration, Yasmin wore some of the clothes from the archive archive for a shoot at his home in Putney, London.

The top collects fashion ever since it was small and still remembers the first trench coat taken in a local market in the middle of a bunch of things and the first Manolos bought at just 19 years.

At the peak of her career, she often paraded five or six times a day for the same designer.

Yasmin remembers a year when she filed for Alaia in a small catwalk in her Paris boutique, and at the end of the day he simply told her “now take what you

like”.
These original pieces became part of the treasures of his archive.

Yasmin now sells a selection of key pieces, collected before and during his career.

The selection includes a knitted Alaia black dress, presented to him by Mr. Alaia himself, a selection of white shirts, which he admits became his uniform while he traveled in the early 90s, two Chanel dresses, one in gold sequins worn at a Pre-Bafta party in 2009, and also at Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen and a black turtleneck one worn in 2006 to accept the Elle Style Award in the name of Karl Lagerfield.

Noted in 1981 by the director of an Oxford fashion agency, while working in a boutique, Yasmin quickly achieved success by parading for the most important designers until 1986.

In 1987 she was chosen as a testimonial of Guess who makes the model’s face popular all over the world.

At the end of the eighties he appeared on the first cover of the US and English editions of Elle magazine. Later he will also have the covers of Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire and Harper’s Bazaar.
