This essay deals with a product that left a substantial footprint on Fashion. Not only Yves Saint Laurent's tuxedo participated in women's emancipation, but also shaped their identity over decades by being endlessly reinvented and expected in every YSL collection. This iconic garment saw its birth while a major shift from haute couture to (luxury) ready-to-wear was occuring in the Fashion industry, and helped breaking the codes of gender places within society.
