This is probably not a look that you may adopt for your wedding day or is it?! However with weddings there are countless events preceeding and post the wedding day itself which may give you the opportunity to rock this look.


The Black Fetish Collection

Leather … Rock, chic, subversive. A material that is both noble in origin and couture in attitude. The very essence of the House of Yves Saint Laurent, leather creates that “skin-on-skin” effect that is madly sensual and highly addictive, making each garment or accessory – bag, skinny jeans or biker jacket – a must-have item the Yves Saint Laurent woman just can’t resist.

“I am fascinated by the incredible depths of colour and texture of this noble material. And particularly by its different textured finishes: weathered, polished, grained, burnished.” …

“I wanted to explore the variations of leather in one single collection that would be perfect for Fall 2014.”

Lloyd Simmonds



Lloyd Simmonds drew on his fascination with leather, from the most precious to the most rebellious, to create a sensual, electrically charged make-up collection. A juxtaposition of luxurious textures and opulent, subtly luminous shades with couture contrasts, the result is wearable, immensely tactile and collectible. Burnished tones, from deepest black to shiny bronze, combined with the varnished, glossy sheen of patent leather, perfectly express the tension between matte and lacquered; the contrast between natural nudes and intense reds; and are as easily wearable as a second skin, inspired by suede, nappa, and the untanned roughness of shagreen. For Fall 2014, the Yves Saint Laurent woman flirts with danger. Always chic, but with a rock-star edge invoking  freedom and sensuality, the Yves Saint Laurent woman adores leather in all its versions, and self-confident.


Couture Palette Collector Fetiche

The fetish accessory for eyes. Clothed in full-grain leather and featuring the legendary “Cassandre” logo, the Couture Palette Collector Fétiche evokes biker jacket-style to express outside what is within: a harmony of five warm shades inspired by every variety of leather, from gloriously raw to sublimely natural. More than a palette, the Couture Palette Collector Fétiche is a cult accessory conjuring up the essence of pure luxury, and is an object of desire, projecting timeless, minimalist elegance.



Leather contrasts

The Yves Saint LaurentPalette Fétiche Collector opens to reveal 5 tones of colour and light to sculpt and highlight the eyes to be mixed and combined for the most luxurious of looks.

Base: Bright Copper, a nude, iridescent camel shade

Highlighter: Warm Gold, a luminous gold

3 fetish looks by Lloyd Simmonds


Iconic Leather: The Bright Copper base isapplied over the upper lid, the matte black along the upper lashes and the Amazon Green along the lower lash line.

Burnish Leather:The upper lid is sculpted with the Bright Copper base and Opulent Brown, the hollow of the eye is highlighted with Warm Gold, and matte black is drawn along the lower lash line.

Nude Leather: The inside corner of the eye is illuminated with Warm Gold, and Bright Copper is then drawn towards the outer corner.


Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Baby Doll Rock Ultra Black

The Perfecto for lashes.  A must-have accessory for eyes, the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Baby Doll Rock Ultra Black comes in a deeper, more daring black than ever before, giving the eyes an edgy, rock-star intensity.


“This new mascara is ultra ultra ultra black. Blacker than the blackest mascaras to date. Its transparent base is supercharged with pigments, which gives the lashes a dense but never opaque finish. The intensely rock effect electrifies the eyes in seconds.”

Lloyd Simmonds  




Eyeliners Baby Doll

High voltage power lines. More than ever, Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll is in rock star mode! The essential accessory for an electric look, Eyeliner Baby Doll comes in 2 vibrant shades: a denimblue and a chrome metal.


Gris Vinyle: A high-sheen metallic grey for highlighting

Bleu Patiné: Cobalt denim blue for sculpting

“For the Fall Look 2014, I have created 2 eyeliners to illuminate and sculpt the eyes: Gris Vinyle enlarges the eye and lightens the brow bone. It is applied at the inside corner or along the lashes. Bleu Patiné is an intense shade that gives depth when applied as a liner or simply at the outer corner of the eye.”

Lloyd Simmonds   



Rouge Pur Couture The Mats

Rock icon matte leather – 4 new Pop or nude shades for matte attitude.  As soft and pure as the finest leathers, Rouge Pur Couture The Mats are now a rock look classic. Their matte texture sits comfortably on the lips, like stretch leather, leaving them supple, glowing and velvety soft. Formulated with “Velvet Complex”, a combination of spherical powders and silk oil, Rouge Pur Couture “The Mats” gives the lips a perfect matte finish, a sensual sheen and 6-hour colour hold that never fades or smudges.



2 rouges Pop:

Fuschia Fétiche: the iconic YSL pink  
Red Rythm: Intensely vibrant red


2 nudes Folk:

Rose Perfecto:a fresh-faced pink  
Nude Acoustic: a subtle, bare-flesh pink



Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres

A second skin “leather”lip stain – 2 new sensual shades for kiss-perfect lips

Beige Peau: a natural, chic, easy-to-wear naked beige

Brun Cuir: an intense, assertive, sophisticated brown


A brand new feeling for the lips, with a wet-effect sheen, and an intense, lasting colour. Not quite a lipstick, not quite a gloss, and certainly more than a mere lip colour, Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres isthe ultimate lip-colour sensation thanks to its exceptionalhold and lush finish. The “Lifeproof Color Emulsion”formula:a subtle measure of pigments and colorants, provides a deep intensity with no overloadAnd to match the performance of the formula, a unique applicator with a tapered tip allows you to draw on an ultra-precise lip contour.



La Laque Couture – Les Graines

Rock chic to the fingertips. As chic as a pair of fine leather gloves, as easy to wear as a classic lacquer, Laque Couture coats the nails with a never-before effect: a full-grain leather texture, somewhere between matte and satin, in two elegant shades:

Bleu Galuchat: a metallic blue-grey

Taupe Grainé: a matte suede brown

Hands can be fashion’s most sophisticated accessories. Apply a fine coat, allow to dry for 2 minutes and apply a second fine coat, or even a third, for a 3-d relief effect. The grained look appears as the lacquer dries.



Question and Answer Time with Lloyd Simmonds


1/Leather is the star of the Fall Look 2014. What attracted you to it?

“I am fascinated by the incredible depth of the colours and textures of this noble material. In particular by the different patinas: weathered, polished, burnished. … I wanted to explore different leathers in a single palette.”


2/What is the attitude of the Saint Laurent woman this Fall?

“She is edgy, sexy, likes flirting with danger. Not really a fetishist, but she has her sexy rock side. She exudes a powerful attraction and self-confidence, like when she puts on her leather biker jacket or steps into her black pumps.”


3/The campaign look embodied by Cara Delevingne is certainly very assertive: Intense eyes, matte red lips … How did you work on this look?

“I pushed the leather aspect to play out this idea of extreme seduction, to become a totally hot look: smouldering eyes and Cuir Rouge on the lips, Galuchat on the nails …”


4/How can the look be worn on an everyday basis?

“Outside of a photo shoot it is rare to wear a total look. But it can be interpreted by using just some of the items in the collection: a lip gloss, an eyeliner and a mascara, an eye shadow and a Galuchat lacquer, etc.  The modern effect comes from a healthy, luminous complexion.Starting from that, you can play with make-up like an accessory.”


5/Tell us about the rock palette …

“I adore it because it brings together all the tones of skin colour and raw leather. It offers several textures – from matte black to slightly metallic camel – to create a base, a shape or a highlight. Each woman can use it as her mood dictates.”


6/Smoky or graphic? What are the 2014 codes for eyes?

“There is a major trend towards clean, graphic lines. Which is why the eyeliner is key.”


7/What is the secret of the new Mascara Rock Ultra Noir?

“It is ultra ultra ultra black. Even blacker than existing ultra black mascaras.Its transparent base is supercharged with black pigments, which gives a dense but not opaque finish.The effect is very intense and gives new depth to the eyes.”


8/What are your 3 star colours in the collection?

“I prefer to talk about textures: matte, shiny, satin … that can be layered to create different finishes. What I like about them is that you can choose your own favourites. Total freedom of choice in fact.”


9/… Your fetish product of the season? And why?

“Obviously it is the Couture Palette Collector Fétiche because it perfectly sums up the Fall Look 2014. But there are also the Rouges Pur Couture Mats. I like their easy-to-wear texture and they have that very modern rock slant to them.”
