This thoughtful retrospective chronicles the life’s work of esteemed fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent, highlighting his artistic evolution while presenting major themes throughout his 44-year long career. The exhibition takes visitors inside the mind of the designer by first introducing a series of paper dolls with complete outfits and other drawings created in his teenage years.

From his debut Trapeze collection (1958) as a young designer working in the House of Dior, he was at the forefront of fashion. His early innovations continued to redefine women’s couture throughout the 1960s with the pea coat, tuxedo suit, pantsuit and safari jacket, stylistically blending the genders.

Drawn primarily from the archives of the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent and private collections, 110 ensembles tell his story along with numerous photographs, media clippings and runway videos.

A large installation of collection boards from 1962 to 2002 reveal sketches and fabric samples for every haute couture show, tracing the history of his artistic process, while preliminary hand-sewn muslins and an intense collection of costume jewellery exemplify both the working methods and the complete vision of the designer.

Saint Laurent’s interest in modern art and pop culture is highlighted in several galleries where dresses play off adjacent paintings and prints, his most famous example being a 1965 cocktail dress, Homage to Piet Mondrian.

The eloquently presented exhibit concludes with a magnificent procession of evening wear grouped by colour palette. Floor to ceiling displays of chromatic fabric swatches are intermingled among the luxurious garments – again sharing a glimpse into the creative practice of Yves Saint Laurent.
