Thanks a lot! Great pics, he and his style are legendary. Does anyone have more pics of YSL in his home during the late 60s early 70s? Also of a male model wearing an YSL safari jacket?

£300m: Fashion king's art collection in sale of century

</EM>
Auction houses go to war for the right to stage the biggest private-owner sale ever
By Andrew Johnson
Sunday, 13 July 2008


AP
Yves Saint Laurent's love of 20th-century art inspired his Mondrian dress

The fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent amassed an art collection that is renowned as one of the most fabulous in private hands. It includes works by Old Masters and contemporary greats, among them Picasso, Mondrian, Warhol, Matisse and Goya, to name just a few.

Now, following his death last month aged 71, Saint Laurent's business partner, former companion and heir, Pierre Bergé – with whom he built the collection – is reported to be considering a massive international sale.
With the collection believed to be worth a staggering £300m, it would be not only the sale of the century, but the biggest private-owner sale ever.
With the glamour surrounding the YSL brand and the vast sums involved, The Art Newspaper reports that the world's two biggest auction houses, Sotheby's and Christie's, have locked horns over which one should handle the sale.
Both houses have apparently "pitched" to M Bergé, who runs his own small auction house in Paris, which is unable to handle the size of the auction.
The paper claims Sotheby's had all but secured the sale in a deal that fell through a month before the designer's death. Christie's quickly stepped in and is believed to be close to clinching the deal. Christie's is helped by the fact that François Pinault, its owner, owned the YSL couture house before Saint Laurent retired in 2002 and it ceased operating.
One of Saint Laurent's most famous designs was inspired by his love of art: the Mondrian dress, which was part of his 1966 Pop Art collection.
Saint Laurent drew up a will with M Bergé saying that the art collection should either be left to the foundation they had created in Paris to preserve his work, or sold, with the proceeds left to the foundation. Although M Bergé, who was the business brains behind YSL for many years, and Saint Laurent were renowned art collectors, little is known about the details of their collection, though it was described by Sotheby's UK chairman, James Stourton, in his 2007 book Great Collectors of Our Time, as a "room of masterpieces".

Christie's Will Sell YSL's Art Collection

By Bloomberg News | July 17, 2008


Christie's International said it will be selling the art collection of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé in Paris in February 2009.
The auction will be held in association with Pierre Bergé & Associates, the Paris auction house owned by the fashion designer's former business partner, Christie's said Wednesday in an e-mailed statement.
The specific date and contents of the sale have yet to be announced, London-based Christie's said.
Saint Laurent died last month, aged 71. He and Mr. Bergé, who co-founded the Yves Saint Laurent couture house in 1961, amassed a collection of artworks that is believed to be worth as much as $599 million, according to the Art Newspaper.
The newspaper said that their collection features works by a range of contemporary artists and old masters that includes Picasso, Warhol, Mondrian, Matisse, and Goya.

Yves & Pierre wrote the most perfect scenario for YSL, I mean he retired in the right time with an unforgittable grand & chic celebration, he sold his name to the right group & now it is in safe hands, he created his own museum & now the art collection that they had collected over years is to be sold to preserve his name & legacy forever...
& as Yves once said: " The most important thing is to last."
& he will!
RIP Yves .. love you forever....

Lace Cocktail Dress By Dior, Spring/Summer 1960

This strapless, white lace cocktail dress was probably designed by Yves Saint Laurent at Christian Dior for the Spring/Summer collection of 1960. The dress is fitted onto a silk corset and is made from a large-scale floral lace, which is supported by layers of silk and nylon net. Some of the lace pattern has been cut away and then reapplied to the material to give the dress a three-dimensional surface.

The House of Dior often created short evening and cocktail dresses from lace and other delicate materials for their Spring/Summer collections.

A pair of shoes with a similar floral pattern were made by Massaro of Paris to complement the dress.
