As the sobriquet the “King of Fashion” suggests,
Yves Saint Laurent was a dominant figure
in the world of 20th century fashion.
Following the sudden death of Christian Dior in 1958, Yves Saint Laurent made his brilliant debut as a designer at the House of Dior. In 1962, he launched his own brand, Yves Saint Laurent. From then until his retirement in 2002, Yves Saint Laurent revolutionized women’s clothing for nearly half a century and remained at the forefront of the international fashion scene.
This exhibition, organized with the full cooperation of the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, marks the first retrospective of the designer’s works ever to be staged in Japan after his death. Throughout his 40-year career, Yves Saint Laurent consistently devised styles with universal appeal while taking inspiration from a diverse range of cultural and historical influences. Consisting of Introduction and eleven sections, the exhibition presents a comprehensive overview of Yves Saint Laurent’s work, from his debut at Dior and the first collection that appeared under his own brand to the establishment of his own style, through 110 of the designer’s looks as well as accessories, drawings, and photographs. Please join us as we savor the world of magnificent beauty created by Yves Saint Laurent.
