Opium (YSL)

Yves Saint Laurent is a traditionalist for the effective preservation of its imperial image over other luxury brands. This particular one contains more nuances than many other YSL ads. In order to be able to observe these details one shall look deep in these two pieces and think clear to comprehend the point. Unlike the primitive Sisley advertisement, this one describes a certain orgasmic connection between drugs and sexuality. Thus, it is not sex or drugs that is being promoted, but instead it is the sensualist associations. The last but not least, since opium is not a common drug at all, YSL would not pick a model that is not a Redhead.
