Yves Saint Laurent may have closed its doors in 2002, but the spirit of Haute Couture lives on! For all you need to know about the work of the man who invented the modern woman's wardrobe, head to the foundation that bears his name.
In honour of the great designer…
If you're feeling nostalgic for the work of YSL, I strongly recommend you head to the Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, which provides a detailed look back at the fashion he created over a 40-year period. My only regret is that the 5,000 articles of haute couture clothing that are stored here are not visible to the public.
…and in honour of Art
With retrospectives, conferences and temporary exhibitions, it is not only the great man himself who is celebrated. Themes as diverse as the 1960s and the role of women, Russian popular dress, and vanity & death are also explored. From painting and photography to the decorative arts and fashion, the entire world of Art is celebrated here.

I'm a journalist and always looking for the latest fashionable place. My leisure time is very Parisian: shopping, restaurants, trendy bars with my girlfriends… My little extra: I'm a trend spotter!
