Yves Saint Laurent: Dreams of the Orient – Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris

From October 2, 2018 to January 21, 2019, the Yves Saint Laurent: Dreams of the Orient exhibition will bring together 50 haute couture designs inspired by India, China and Japan.

For its new exhibition, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent focuses on Yves Saint Laurent: Dreams of the Orient. An exhibition running from October 2, 2018 to January 27, 2019.

Without really leaving his studio, Yves Saint Laurent worked on traditional Indian, Chinese and Japanese clothes to give live to his haute couture designs and fragrances.

From his first collections, he revisits sovereigns’ sumptuous coats from India. Then, he explores the Imperial China for his fall-winter 1977 collection and kimono in 1994!

His dreams will take Yves Saint Laurent to Spain, Morocco, Russia, China: “extraordinary travels” dreamt from his readings and art objects that are not too far from the reality.

He will explain to the Elle magazine team: “This China, I’ve so often interpreted in my creations, I found it exactly as I’ve imagined. I only need a picture book to have my mind blending in a place or a landscape. […] I feel no need to go there. I’ve been dreaming of it so much…

All in all, 50 haute couture designs inspired by India, China and Japan are displayed in the Musée Yves Saint Laurent rooms for this beautiful exhibition, Yves Saint Laurent: Dreams of the Orient.

To go along his designs, Asian art objects lent by the Musée Guimet and by private collectors. To be visited!
