The inside story
Over fifteen years after the haute couture house closed, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris opened on October 3, 2017. The museum is located in the legendary hôtel particulier at 5 avenue Marceau where Yves Saint Laurent spent nearly thirty years designing his collections from 1974 to 2002.
Across 450 m2, an ever-changing rotation of retrospective displays and temporary thematic exhibitions present the Fondation’s rich and unique collection. The inaugural display presents approximately fifty designs alongside accessories, sketches, photographs, and videos. The former haute couture salons and the legendary studio where Saint Laurent worked are opened to the public, offering visitors a glimpse of his creative process. The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris focuses on both the couturier’s creative genius and the process of designing a haute couture collection.
