Yves Saint Laurent at the De Young

December 12, 2008


The De Young Museum is presenting a retrospective on fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent, organized by FAMSF and The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in collaboration with the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent.

The exhibition explores the designs that made Saint Laurent famous, and his inspirations from art, theatre, history, literature, and nature.; and mark the first major retrospective of Saint Lauren’s work in over 25 years.

We went two Sundays ago but I want to come back as soon as possible to spent more time admiring the almost 130 garments and sketches.

The garments are truly pieces of art, crafted and accessorized in beautiful ways, and inspired by artists, nature, and even countries.

San Francisco is the only city of the entirely USA that has the honor of presenting the exhibition that will run until April 2009. I totally recommend you to go, now!!!
