    Gone but never forgotten, Yves Saint Laurent is sharing his creative process with the world in one of the most fun ways we've seen yet — and no, this time we're not talking about Courtney Love. Famous for bridging the gap between haute couture and ready-to-wear clothing, Saint Laurent is releasing an oversize activity book and putting the power of pen pastels in the hands of fashion lovers everywhere.

    Filled with pages of sketches, silhouettes, and patterns to excite the elementary schooler in us all, YSL: Prêt-À-Porter: Coloring, Activity, and Inspiration Book is simultaneously a historical document and an outlet for innovation. Choose to follow the directions — "use these vibrant colors, selected by Yves Saint Laurent, to bring warmth to these modern dresses" — or pick your own creative direction.

    Prêt-À-Porter will officially be released May 7. Click through the slideshow for an exclusive peek inside. Then, it's off to the art store for supplies and hours of coloring. Later, productivity!

    YSL: Prêt-À-Porter: Coloring, Activity, and Inspiration Book, $12.98, available at Amazon.
