From 10th October 2017 to 9th September 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 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, Morocco, 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.

Located in the legendary hôtel particulier on 5 avenue Marceau, where Saint Laurent created his designs for nearly thirty years between 1974 and 2002, the display also explores the day-to-day life of the couture house and the creative process behind the collections. It also seeks to address the history of the twentieth century and the haute couture traditions that accompanied a way of life that no longer exists.
