Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal is a journey into the spectacularly stylish world of the late designer

Fashion’s beloved Yves Saint Laurent will get his first retrospective at the Bowes Museum in County Durham. Titled Yves Saint Laurent: Style Is Eternal, the exhibition will feature the designs that made YSL an iconic label including the Mondrian Dress and the Le Smoking Tuxedo. The Museum –which is an 18th century French-style chateau- will present the work of Saint Laurent among their own fashion collection so visitors will be treated to some interesting contrasts and juxtapositions.

The Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent loaned several pieces from its 5000 piece collection in Paris and Saint Laurent’s longtime business partner and one time love interest Pierre Bergé was also present at the opening. “Today everyone is talking about gender. Yves decided to pass the power from the men’s shoulders to the women’s,” he said, speaking about the cultural impact of Le Smoking Tuxedo. “We never interfered with each other, I never went to his studio. I decided to respect the creation before the business.”
