The “Mondrian Revolution”
The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris
February 12 – December 31, 2019

The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris exhibits a unique selection of approximately fifty haute couture designs throughout its entire exhibition space. In addition to the main themes that shaped the couturier’s body of work the new display explores two of Yves Saint Laurent’s major creations: his well-known Mondrian dresses (autumn-winter 1965) and the gowns made in collaboration with the artist Claude Lalanne (autumn-winter 1969). For its new display, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris will devote a considerable part of its exhibition space to the autumn-winter 1965 collection and examine its legacy beyond the history of fashion. “Revolutionary” was how the press described this collection, which drew attention for its modern, avant-garde style.
