Description Guided tour Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris

As a special honour, you will be able to submerse yourself in the world of the famous couturier, Yves Saint Laurent, outside the usual public opening hours.

Inaugurated in October 2017, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris is the first museum of such size entirely dedicated to the work of one of the most famous couturiers of the 20th century. Over 450m² it celebrates both the creative genius of the couturier and the process of creating an haute couture collection.

Just like Yves Saint Laurent's clients of the time, you will enter the museum through the historic front door of the house. This unique and special moment will take you through sumptuous salons, whose original decor has been preserved.

Until September 8th 2018

Once in the exhibition spaces, you will be treated to a show of some of Yves Saint Laurent's most emblematic designs - the tuxedo jacket, the Saharienne, the trench coat, the jumpsuit - designs inspired by Russia, China and India and which revolutionised fashion.

The many documents you will see during your visit will also give you the opportunity to discover the secrets of how an haute couture house works: original sketches, workshop sheets, collection boards, photographs, etc.

But at the heart of your visit will be Yves Saint Laurent's studio, the inner sanctum of this house of haute couture.

Your trip will end among the great artists who inspired the designer throughout his life, including Bonnard, Picasso, Matisse and Mondrian.

Starting October 2nd 2018

In autumn, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris will host its first temporary thematic exhibition, Yves Saint Laurent: Dreams of the Orient.

On a guided visit through this exhibition, you will discover some fifty designs inspired by Japan, India and China, which are shown in conjunction with artistic works from Asia. Your guide will tell you how Yves Saint Laurent, through his collections, managed to create a dream-like vision of distant lands: one that was the fruit of his extraordinary knowledge gained from meticulous research and close, direct study of the continent’s artwork.

During the visit, you will be able to see many notable works. These include his designs that reimagined and reinterpreted Indian sovereigns’ gowns from his very first collections and since, as well as pieces from the Chinese-influenced autumn/winter collection of 1977, and designs inspired by Japan and its traditional kimono robe.
