Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Paris / Inaugural Display from 03 Oct 2017 until 09 Sept 2018.

 

"The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris opens its doors with a unique retrospective display of Yves Saint Laurent’s work, presented on the legendary premises of the former haute couture house. The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris’s inaugural display addresses the couturier’s creative genius through a selection of approximately fifty haute couture designs along with related accessories, sketches, photographs, and films. The display covers all the major themes in Saint Laurent’s work, including: the most emblematic designs embodying the designer’s quintessential style, such as the tuxedo, the safari jacket, the jumpsuit, and the trench coat; his various tributes to art; and the collections inspired by his imagined journeys to such faraway places as China, India, Spain, and, of course, Russia.


This truly unique display places Saint Laurent’s most well-known designs—such as the Mondrian dress and his African-inspired ensembles—alongside pieces being exhibited for the first time. The resulting dialogue between these works has been conceived specifically for the museum’s opening."
