Relocation to 55 rue de Babylone

In 1970, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé moved to a 600 m2 duplex with a garden view at 55 rue de Babylone. There they displayed their extraordinary collection of masterpieces.

Inspired by the eclectic decor of the Noailles’ villa, Saint Laurent and Bergé dared to mix different styles and periods, placing works by Francisco Goya next to Andy Warhol, Edward Burne-Jones alongside Piet Mondrian, Théodore Géricault near Henri Matisse, and Roman marble with Art Deco furniture. Their dynamic way of displaying their collection created a unique dialogue between artists and styles.

Some people change apartments every three years. I move around objects; it gives them a new life.
