Description - Yves Saint Laurent by The Foundation Pierre Berge - Yves Saint Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent's signature design style is marked by its intertwining of references from the art world with those of popular culture and social revolution. Since its establishment in the 1960s by Saint Laurent himself and his partner, Pierre Berge, the Yves Saint Laurent haute couture house has redefined femininity, creating arguably the most famous - and sexiest - suit for women, 'Le Smoking' suit, as well as the innovative, landmark collections Pop Art, Ballet Russes and Picasso.This retrospective book is a one-of-a-kind complete survey of the forty-year history of the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house, highlighting the inventive character of the designer's work. Over 160 of the best designs and accessories, all taken from the Foundation Pierre Berge-Yves Saint Laurent collection, appear along with drawings and photographs. This volume is a beautiful and comprehensive tribute to the timeless style of Yves Saint Laurent design. "Yves Saint Laurent" is the companion book to an exhibition that will travel to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in the summer of 2008 and the de Young Museum in San Francisco in winter of 2008-9.
