#YSL | Style is Eternal

Fashion and Style in museums is defiantly a trend! Karl Lagerfeld in Bonn, Fast Fashion in Hamburg, New for Now in Amsterdam, Sneaker Culture in New York, Kostas Murkudis in Frankfurt and so on. There are so many fashion exhibitions in museums, it’s incredible. Surely, we love it! And now we found another exhibition about one of the most important and fascinating designers in the world: Yves Saint Laurent.

The Bowes Museum and the Fondation Pierre Bergé made it possible to present YSL in the UK. The building of the museum is so impressive. If you imagine, in these fantastic rooms you can see the artworks of YSL – absolutely amazing.


Yves Saint Laurent was an exceptional designer and he also was an art lover and collector. Art was an inspiration for him. You can see this in his unique dresses inspired by Piet Mondrian. Exactly these iconic pieces are presented at Bowes Museum – and the one and only Tuxedo. ❤ Laurent: Style is Eternal presents a range of art-inspired garments which pay tribute to Henry Matisse, Jean Cocteau, Georges Braque and Vincent van Gogh. Examples include and evening gown worn by Katoucha, homage to Geoges Braques (Spring/Summer Haute Couture collection 1988).

After leading the Christian Dior fashion house from 1957 to 1960 as Creative Director, Yves Saint Laurent created his own fashion house with partner Pierre Bergé in the early 1960s. For 40 years Pierre Bergé managed the business while Yves Saint Laurent focused entirely on the creative side.


Right now there’re some points to note: This exhibition ends soon (October 25 2015) and the Bowes Museum is in the UK (Barnard Castle, Newgate, County Durham DL12 8NP, UK). If Barnard Castle is too far, have a look inside the YSL-Onlineshop of the museum. Eight fantastic season scarfes are waiting for you. 😉
