Guided tour Pierre Berge-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation
A guide will welcome you in the luxurious salons of the Foundation. As a true privilege, you will enter the studio of the great designer, where each collection was born. Your guide will narrate 1001 anecdotes while presenting several original sketches on which you would be able to read the annotations of Mr. Saint Laurent destined for the workshop. Emblematic haute couture prototypes will also be unveiled for you. Finally, it is in the rich library before the bibles of the YSL collection, that you will understand the functioning of such a fashion house..
Yves Saint Laurent sensed, better than any other designer, the movements of society. If Chanel gave liberty to women, Saint Laurent gave them power. By making use of masculine codes, he brought women security and audacity whilst accentuating their feminity.
40 years after opening their haute couture fashion house, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge decided to create a foundation to « transform these memories into projects ». The Foundation set itself 3 objectives : The conservation of 5000 haute couture garments and 15000 accessories, sketches…, the organisation of exhibitions on fashion, paintings, photographs… and the support of cultural and educational projects.
Exhibition from march 14, 2013 to july 21, 2013
Guided tours of Yves Saint Laurent's studio and library also available during off exhibition periods.
