Over fifteen years after the haute couture house closed, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris will open on October 3, 2017. It will be 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. Over 450 m2, themed temporary exhibitions showcase the wealth of unique heritage preserved by the Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent, the genius of the couturier and the process of creating a haute couture collection.

The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris will focus on both the couturier’s creative genius and the process of designing a haute couture collection. Beyond its monographic ambitions, the museum seeks to address the history of the twentieth century and the haute couture traditions that accompanied a way of life that no longer exists.

Set designer Nathalie Crinière and decorator Jacques Grange, both long-time collaborators of the Fondation, have designed the exhibition spaces to recreate the original atmosphere of the haute couture house.

At its opening, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris was the first museum of this scale, dedicated to the work of one of the twentieth century’s greatest couturiers, to open in the capital of fashion.
