OUR EXHIBITION SPACES ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR RENOVATION. IT WILL SOON HOUSE THE MUSÉE YVES SAINT LAURENT PARIS, WHICH IS SCHEDULED TO OPEN ON 3 OCTOBER 2017.
Across 450 m2, an ever-changing display of Yves Saint Laurent’s work will present the Fondation’s rich and unique heritage. Approximately fifty models will be exhibited, along with various accessories, sketches, photographs, and videos. The salons where the collections were shown and the historic studio where the couturier worked will be opened to the public, offering visitors a glimpse of his creative process.
Set designer Nathalie Crinière and decorator Jacques Grange, long-time collaborators of the Fondation, have been entrusted with designing the exhibition space to recreate the original atmosphere of the haute couture house.
The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris will be the first museum of this scale dedicated to one of the twentieth century’s greatest couturiers to open in the capital of fashion. It will coincide with the opening of another Museum in Marrakech (Morocco)
