new exhibition "Nan Kempner, une
américaine à Paris" , at Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent

Quote:
"Nan Kempner was faithful to Saint Laurent as a woman is faithful to
her
lover. As such her relationship with fashion went far beyond that of
other
women.
Fashion played an essential role in her life. She was both muse and
patron. A
patron of creation. Hers was a unique way of dialoguing with
couturiers, with
Yves Saint Laurent in particular."

www.fondation-pb-ysl.net


Exhibition from May 16th to July 29th 2007
Open to the public from Tuesday to Sunday, 11 am to 6 pm

Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent
3, rue Léonce Reynaud
75116 Paris

nan kempner- an american in paris...
witty name for the exhibit...
i like the idea...to show only her ysl pieces all together like that...


i recently purchased two classic vintage YSL pieces...
a black silk blouse with ruffled collar and pussy bow and a blk velvet bolero vest...
they are iconic pieces that are signature YSL and had a major influence on my personal style from a very young age when i first saw them...
still cannot believe they are part of my personal wardrobe now...

thanks static & karma 4u
I am really amazed how Yves reserved his style through different decades & genration I mean from the 1962 until 2002 he was able to maintain his style & perfecting his iconic outfits as if we see them for the 1st time season after season , at that time it might sound boring, but he knows it is good for his legacy..& he should be respected for that.
