Yves Saint Laurent aux musées. 60th anniversary of the first runway show
Yves Saint Laurent Aux Musées celebrates the 60th anniversary of the first Yves Saint Laurent runway show. On January 29, 1962, the 26-year-old designer presented his inaugural collection under his own name. From that day on, Saint Laurent seized upon a vision and a style that became his staple throughout his career and until 2002, forty years in which he broke down barriers and introduced bold new forms.
The exhibition YVES SAINT LAURENT AUX MUSÉES will convene six Parisian museums: the Centre Pompidou, the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, the Musée du Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Musée National Picasso-Paris and the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, and delve into the profound inspirational bond the couturier had with art in general, and the collections of French public museums in particular.
