Just three weeks after the death of 86-year old YSL co-founder Pierre Bergé, the fashion company launches a big exhibition in Paris. The new venue is one of two Yves Saint Laurent museums to be opened this month, honoring the 2008-deceased fashion designer's life and work. The museum is located in the company's former headquarter, where Saint Laurent himself worked in his studio, designing all his creations. On display are famous costumes, designs, and photographs; but also parts of building itself are worth looking at: The original atelier has been rebuild truly to the original, including Yves' glasses laying on the working table, next to his drafts. Other sections showcase mannequins, wearing iconic garments, as the 'Le Smoking' tuxedo, that revolutionized women's way of dressing and caused a big scandal back then.
The second museum is going to launch still this month in Marrakech, Morocco, where the designer partly used to live.
