by the way the last retrospective of YSL in Paris, was in the 80s.
- the show in 2002 at Beaubourg is not included, of course. -

I recently got a vintage YSL dress for a real bargain (not even 100 Euros) in incredible quality and now I am wondering from when it is...
The label says Yves Saint Laurent - rive gauche (with the red squares next to it) and Made in France, RG H94 2 350

It's made from wool and silk, kneelength, all black - the top is made of thick velvet, with shoulderpads, and is closed in the back with big octagon buttons, the lower part is made from wool with some very flattering pleating at the waist

i already love it, if it's fake or not or from whatever year it dates. but i am curious - i'd say it's from the beginning of the 90s, looking a lot like the collection from 95 posted in #458

where can i find old collection pictures on the net? the here often quoted ysl-hautecoutoure.com seems to be off...

ok some new books releases ...

First the YSL Bergé collection The sale of the century :
http://www.amazon.fr/Saint-Laurent-P...3829301&sr=8-4
a book about the YSL Bergé collection has already been published. So I don't know what this one has of new ... Couldn't flipped through it, it was under plastic.

and another biography of YSL (but a rather dirty side of him):
Saint Laurent, mauvais garçon (YSL, Bad Boy)
http://www.amazon.fr/Saint-laurent-m...9&sr=8-1-fkmr1
* I guess it will be translated one day.

the website for YSL retrospective is "under construction"
http://www.yslretrospective.com/attente/
soon to be released ...

Quote:
La Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent et le Petit Palais, Musée des Beaux- Arts de la Ville de Paris, présentent la première rétrospective sur l’intégralité de l’oeuvre d’Yves Saint Laurent. 307 modèles de haute couture et prêt-à-porter sont exposés depuis les débuts du couturier chez Dior en 1958, avec la fameuse collection “ Trapèze ”, jusqu’à la splendeur des robes du soir de 2002. De nombreuses photographies et films illustrent, le contexte historique, la construction du style Yves Saint Laurent et les fondements de son oeuvre.
En 40 ans de création, Yves Saint Laurent a révolutionné la garde-robe de la femme en empruntant au vestiaire masculin le smoking, le tailleur pantalon et la saharienne pour en vêtir les femmes : il fit ainsi passer les attributs du pouvoir d’un sexe à l’autre.
S’inspirant de la rue (collection scandale 1971), de ses voyages imaginaires (Russie, Chine, Inde, Espagne, Japon, Afrique et Maroc) et de son dialogue avec l’Art (Mondrian, Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh), Yves Saint Laurent n’a cessé “ de faire de la mode une fête ”.
nothing very excited has been added ...
but we now know the retrospective will include his work at Christian Dior ....

I visited the retrospective last week and it is truly amazing. If you can go, I highly recommend it. It's very complete with more than 300 silhouettes on display and the presentation is good overall (except for the tuxedos which you can't really see despite the fact that it is probably YSL's most iconic design). I rented an audioguide and the comments were worth it.

Here are a few of the pictures I took to give you an idea :

You're welcome, I'm glad you like it
It will close on August 29th, so you still have a couple of weeks to go.
I highly recommend you reserve your entry ticket from fnac.com for example though, because otherwise you may have to wait a couple of hours outside to get in!
