Between retrospective and tribute
The musée YSL was thought as a place of tribute and temporary and thematic retrospectives that will be proposed over the month. For its opening, the museum has chosen to show about fifty fashion designers’ models drawings, sketchbooks, but also many photographs, accessories and films retracing his exceptional life. Because Yves Saint Laurent marked fashion history with his avant-gardist creations. The public can namely admire on-the-spot the legendary Yves Saint Laurent’s studio that was recreated for the exhibition and visitors can enjoy also the haute couture salons where the collections were presented. For the anecdote, the museum settled into the actual Hotel Particulier of the Yves Saint Laurent fashion brand. From 1974 to 2002 this is where Monsieur Saint Laurent imagined, drew, and designed his collections. A sumptuous place that will amaze children and adults, and that is to be visited before going back to your room at the hotel Mareuil.

Nocturnal on Friday until 9p.m.
Closed on Mondays, December 25th, January 1st and May 1st.
