A must see if you love fashion and love YSL! This museum displayed a great number of pieces from his collection and you get to visit his work studio. It was wonderful to see his designs and his clothing and jewelry displayed. It’s 10 euros...More

Before going to its first temporary exhibition of Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, I have watched a few clips of YSL’s visits to Japan. The documentaries are testimonials of his appreciation of the Japanese culture. I used to visit his residence in Morocco and learnt...More
This exquisite small museum in the original studio space of YSL is amazing and rewarding. Exhibitions are temporary, due to the fragile nature of the materials. The current show of Asian-inspired evening wear is stunning, with fashions reflecting Chinese, Indian and Japanese influences. The YSL...More
I joined a guided tour to try and get more information and to see additional parts of the museum but it was a normal wander through the exhibition.
The museum is worth a visit on its own but the tour did not add much value....More
The museum is really small, especially in comparison to other design house/designer museums or exhibitions I've seen. That said, the star of this one is definitely the designer's studio, which has been recreated to what it looked like back in the day and you're allowed...More

Bought a little book called Yves Saint Laurent, The Album. ISBN 978-2-7118-7057-8, with a few bits in that might be of help. Page 40-41, picture of Marie Helvin in a Chinese inspired outfit, Autumn/Winter 1977 and... More
Bought a little book called Yves Saint Laurent, The Album. ISBN 978-2-7118-7057-8, with a few bits in that might be of help. Page 40-41, picture of Marie Helvin in a Chinese inspired outfit, Autumn/Winter 1977 and info'about collection, including the design for Opium fragrance. Page 52 about 'Evening ensemble of Chinese inspiration'. The quote 'I've finally cracked the secret of the Imperial City where I liberate you, my aesthetic ghosts, my queens, my divas, my whirlwind parties, my inky, crepe de Chine nights,my Coromandel lacquer, my artificial lakes, and my hanging gardens.' which is from a hand written note. Good luck with your project.
