These institutions celebrate the 60th anniversary of the very first Yves Saint Laurent show, the perfect occasion for an XXL exhibition running from January 29 to May 15, 2022.

The Louvre shines as bright as a diamond: the Galerie d’Apollon unveils some of the most exceptional clothes designed by Yves Saint Laurent. The great designer was fascinated by gold and light that reflect the sun so well. Both of them have been added to creations thought by Yves Saint Laurent.

The designer was also interested in decorative arts and pomp, as one can discover in the exhibition held in the Louvre gallery. Although the designer drew inspiration in all cultures and art movements, he does not compromise with the essential: the beauty of his collections also enables to shine a light on French artisans’ know-how!
