Starting Monday, juggernaut fashion label Yves Saint Laurent will be introducing their 'New Vintage' collection.

'New Vintage' by Yves Saint Laurent will be using vintage fabrics from past collections to create new designs. The collection will be sold exclusively at Barney's New York and is entirely limited edition.

Implications - Eco concerns are more important to consumers than ever before, so it's a smart move that labels like Yves Saint Laurent are making sure to incorporate sustainable fabrics into their designs. This kind of initiative is not lost on the general public, and any designer that shows that the environment is a priority is sure to make a favorable impression on their target customers.
