Yves Saint Laurent  – SHAPES AND FORMS
From 9th June 2023 to 14th January 2024

Yves Saint Laurent was a great couturier who was always inventing shapes. In 1958, as artistic director at Christian Dior, he asserted his modern outlook by creating the "Trapèze" line. This geometric silhouette became iconic and entered fashion history. From the 1960s onwards, his creations combined simple cuts, precise lines, and bold colors.

The designer played with geometry, creating modern and radical shapes. From curves to right angles, from spheres to broken lines, this round of forms of textile and graphic art pieces from the museum's collections dialogue with the works and decors of Claudia Wieser. Known for her immersive and contemplative constructions, Wieser exhibits a set of pieces here, some of which are new.

This original experience once and for all confirms Yves Saint Laurent as a genius of our contemporary era.

By offering you a guided tour of the Museum before it opens to the public (11am), Cultival allows you to discover, under exceptional circumstances, this completely new exhibition and the realm of one of the 20th century’s greatest couturiers.

The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, which opened its doors in October 2017, is situated on the historic site of the former fashion house. It is in this unique setting that your tour guide will bring to life before you the fashion designer’s creative genius while you discover his works on display as well as Yves Saint Laurent’s own studio.

A unique visit to the museum before it opens to the public, a building immersed in a historic setting preserved within one of Paris’s most elegant districts.
