In 1970, Yves Saint Laurent drew his first "LOVE" which became a series of greeting cards in poster format, which he sent until 2007 to his family, friends, collaborators and clients. 

Every year, the couturier mixes techniques - collages, drawings or gouache - and renews his chromatic palette. Many of these maps are inspired by Morocco, where Yves Saint Laurent most often produces them. They are also tributes to Georges Braque, Jean Cocteau, Andy Warhol and Henri Matisse.
