Yves Saint Laurent is coming to America

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

The fantastic exhibit-Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective– which called the Petit Palais in Paris it’s home last year, is finally making its way Stateside in 2012. The beautifully curated presentation, supported by Foundation Pierre BergĂ© will make it’s way into the Denver Art Museum March 25 and features over 200 haute couture garments, as well as historical photos, drawings and films that highlight the designer’s extensive career. From his early days at Dior to his final show for Yves in 2002, Saint Laurent remains one of the most influential creative minds of the last century, and much like the Met’s Alexander McQueen exhibit which recently closed, it’s likely to pull in quite an audience.


“[Saint Lauren] revolutionized the fashion world, just as the masters he drew inspiration from revolutionized the art world.” the directors of the DAM noted. The exhibit will be split into 9 sections, chronicling his climb to the top of the fashion world. From “The birth of a revolutionary couturier” through “The Colors of Yves Saint Laurent”, this exhibit will give the upcoming Costume Institute exhibit a run for its money.
