A Look Inside: Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech
Yves Saint Laurent famously said, "Marrakech taught me color. Before Marrakech, everything was black" when he bought a cobalt blue villa in the Moroccan city and made it his vacation home in 1966.
An extensive collection of couture, accessories, sketches and photographs will be on display at the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Marrakech, when it opens to the public on 19 October 2017. The museum is set to showcase creations that span the late designer's 40-year career, from 1962 until his retirement in 2002.
A new Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris also opened the doors to the designer’s French atelier last week. "The two museums show Saint Laurent’s duality; his dark and colorful pieces, that he is both classical and baroque, the minimal line but also the Arabesque," explains Björn Dahlström, the director of Musée Yves Saint Laurent.
"He is both Marrakech and Paris."
