Yves Saint Laurent Retrospective
Petit Palais, Paris, France
March 11 - August 29, 2010
"The first retrospective of Yves Saint Laurent's life's work. Around 300 haute couture and ready-to-wear models on display span the decades from the couturier's debut at Dior in 1958, with the famous 'Trapèze' collection, up to the sumptuous evening dresses of 2002. Numerous photographs and films illustrate the historical context, the development of Yves Saint Laurent's style and the foundations of his work."
"Drawing inspiration from the street (scandal collection 1971), his imaginary travels (Russia, China, India, Spain, Japan, Africa and Morocco) and his dialogue with Art (Mondrian, Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh), Yves Saint Laurent was forever “turning fashion into celebration”."
