PUSH THE BOUNDARIES

YSL BEAUTY LAUNCHES A DOCUMENTARY SERIES
OF PEOPLE LEADING THE CHANGE


As M. Saint Laurent once said, ‘I participated in the transformation of an era’.

In 2021, we become part of creative and cultural movements where talented people dare to play with the limits of society. We believe that the boundaries of society are not fixed. So, in recognition of today’s seismic cultural shift, we join the wave of change in support of those with the courage to stand out from the crowd.

“Push The Boundaries” has been created to
empower and support daring people who are
surpassing society’s limits in order to create
change.


Stephan Bezy,
International General Manager at YSL Beauty



EPISODES

MEET KITTENS (SHE/THEY)


ARTIST / DJ / PRODUCER / HOST / PHILANTHROPIST


Default is to care about what everyone else thinks, but KITTENS has learned and advised to get out of your own way. As an activist of the LGBTQIA+ community, and first generation Iranian-American, Kittens grew up interacting with music, but had to push boundaries to make it her world. A self-taught DJ, she combined her relentless curiosity with the influences around her to create music as bold as she is. Kittens knows what it’s like to ditch the whole idea you have for your life and go down a different path, which is why she has created platforms to help others do the same.

Kittens has surpassed the boundaries set before her, and has positioned themselves to help others do the same through PWR - a celebrated series of non-profit DJ workshops for women and marginalized genders she created – as well as her own podcast “SHE/HER/THEY with KITTENS” – intended for audiences who transcend identity expectations. Live in the moment with Kittens and let her show you how to seize it, feel it, and hear it.



Today, Kittens challenges you to say “what if I am good enough” just as I am, and what can I overcome to become the most badass version of me. When you hear her music, you just may hear your calling.

AN INTERVIEW WITH

STEPHAN BEZY


INTERNATIONAL GENERAL MANAGER
AT YSL BEAUTY


Find out why YSL Beauty decided to take this initative to empower others to lead the change.

WHY WAS IT IMPORTANT FOR YSL BEAUTY TO CREATE
THE PUSH THE BOUNDARIES DOCUMENTARY SERIES?


We thought: What if we could push the boundaries and accompany people who move society forward, just as Monsieur Saint Laurent did? “Push The Boundaries” has been created to empower and support daring people who are surpassing society’s limits in order to create change.

WHY DO YOU THINK A NEW GENERATION IS DRIVING
CHANGE RIGHT NOW?


New beginnings are taking place all around the world. Some of them are silent; others are more obvious. The current situation calls upon us to review our relationship with ourselves and others. We want to support these daring code-breakers by empowering their creativity, helping them become even more visible and anchoring them in their own culture, so they can continue to influence others among their community.
