Yves Saint Laurent is definitely one of my fashion favorites and I was thrilled to read about a new YSL giveaway. Pieces from their 2009 Spring/Summer collection will be given away in a fun, creative, and interactive way. Here’s where it all starts, pictures from the photoshoot by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin will be uploaded onto heart-shaped USB flashdrives. The flashdrives will be handed out on many of the streets of New York, Paris, London, Hong Kong and Tokyo. The first 2,000 people will also receive a bonus tote bag designed by Stefano Pilati.
