Our friends over at FabSugar took a field trip down to De Young Museum in San Francisco to check out the YSL exhibition. The exhibition is open now through Sunday, April 5, 2009- you can buy tickets here. If you can’t make it, here is a sneak peek of the exhibition, spanning 40 years and 130 ensembles.
In the 1960s Yves Saint Laurent made an indelible mark on fashion with clothing emblematic of the new modernity. Yves Saint Laurent, organized by FAMSF and The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in collaboration with the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent, explores the designs that made Saint Laurent famous, and his inspirations drawn from art, theatre, history, literature, and nature. This exhibition contains nearly 130 accessorized garments and sketches illustrating the lines, colors, and fundamentals of Saint Laurent’s work. This is the only U.S. venue.
