Yves Saint Lau­rent, the Mu­seum

Where Paris - - Arts & Attractions -

The mu­seum de­voted to the French de­signer Yves Saint Lau­rent is open­ing its doors this month on the premises of his for­mer haute cou­ture house. It will open up with a ret­ro­spec­tive of some 50 of his de­signs along­side ac­ces­sories, sketches, pho­to­graphs and videos. The col­lec­tion, which is owned by the Fon­da­tion Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Lau­rent, en­ables vis­i­tors to see the en­tire creative process that went into de­sign­ing a gar­ment. Fur­ther con­tribut­ing to the strength of the col­lec­tion was Saint Lau­rent’s de­ci­sion to keep a se­lec­tion of pro­to­types, be­gin­ning in 1962, from each col­lec­tion. These pro­to­types are the ver­sion of the model that he de­signed, ex­e­cuted in the ate­liers ac­cord­ing to his in­struc­tions and which was later shown on the run­way. The pro­to­type was con­served along with its match­ing ac­ces­sories such as jewellery, shoes, gloves and hats. The col­lec­tion com­prises ev­ery haute cou­ture col­lec­tion that Yves Saint Lau­rent pre­sented be­tween 1962 and 2002.
