Designed by Studio KO, the Museum’s Design follows the Classic Fashion Style of Yves Saint Lauren. The façade of the building itself is elegant and struck by curves running alongside straight lines that mimic the weft and warp of a delicate fabric.
It’s an elegant building that matches the pristine elegance of YSL and his devotion to clean and classic lines.
The museum itself sits a short distance away from Jardin Majorelle, the popular home acquired by Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé in 1980 that served as lovers retreat for the couple. This is another point that brings Saint Lauren and this Museum a bit closer!
The major highlight of this museum is a large permanent exhibition space designed by scenographist Christophe Martin that showcases the best of Yves Saint Laurent’s Designs. If you are a fan of YSL, you’ll be amazed by this stunning exhibition.
The museum also features temporary exhibition spaces, a research library and archives, an auditorium, bookstore, and a luxury terrace cafe. It’s the right place for YSL aficionados to visit and learn more about this iconic fashion creator.
All in all, this museum is a place where art, architecture and fashion come together to pay an elegant and powerful tribute to the legacy of Yves Saint Laurent.
