Yves Saint Laurent Fondation


Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé opened their haute couture house at 30 bis, rue Spontini in 1962. They would remain there for twelve years, during which Yves Saint Laurent was to invent the modern woman's wardrobe. In 1974, they moved to 5, avenue Marceau, a hôtel particulier dating from the Second Empire. It was here that Yves Saint Laurent would assert his style until 2002, when he ended his career.
The Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent is the accomplishment of forty years of creation. It retraces the history of fashion as created by Yves Saint Laurent, fashion that reveals the inner workings of society. By making use of masculine codes, he brought women self-assurance, audacity and power, whilst preserving their feminity. These clothes are part of the 20th century history. They have accompanied women's emancipation in every domain, be it personal, social or political.
