Heads up, fashionistas! The Yves Saint Laurent, a visionary exhibition opens on January 30 in the ING Cultural Centre, Place Royale in Brussels. This exclusive exhibition shows, for the first time, how Yves Saint Laurent's designs and concepts have radically changed the world of fashion. This collection, which has never been seen before, has been put together in conjunction with the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation.
Curator Florence Müller, who had previously put together the Yves Saint Laurent retrospective in the Petit Palais in Paris, lets us become acquainted with the Yves Saint Laurent who set the trend in the 1960s and 1970s for women's fashion. Of the exhibit's one hundred items, more than 80 have never been displayed before. Fans can see how the designer created trouser suits, sahara outfits, jumpsuits, flowing sailor shirts, uniform jackets and tuxedos.
Yves Saint Laurent began creating his fashion world for the new woman from a very young age. The “Paper dolls” and their wardrobe he designed in his teens are one of the key revelations of this exhibition. They also provide an exceptional opportunity for opening up the archives of the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation for the first time.
The exhibition runs from January 30 to May 5 in the ING Cultural Centre, Place Royale 6, 1000 Brussels. For tickets and guided tours, visit ing.be/art.
