French stylist Olivier Chatenet who have amassed a huge collection of Yves Saint Laurent’s clothes over the last 20 years has put together this exhibition consisting of 87 pieces of Yves Saint Laurent clothes. Inspired by a 10 francs dark green trench coat he discovered by chance at a flee market, he has assembled this unusual and powerful private collection.
The exhibition titled “Crazy about Yves” shows the most genuine, playful, powerful, spontaneous side of Yves Saint Laurent and also Olivier himself. There is a mixture of colours and patterns, little black dresses from the 1960 and shows how fashion has evolved over the years.
Admission is free.
