Musée Yves Saint Laurent
The work of twentieth century fashion’s most renowned and respected designer, Yves Saint Laurent, is forever immortalized through the recent opening of the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Marrakech. The late couturier’s love affair with Marrakech began in 1966, when he and his partner Pierre Bergé first visited the Moroccan city; a holiday that had a career-long influence on Saint Laurent’s life and work.
Marrakech’s most sought-out museum was designed by leading architecture firm Studio KO and is situated on the corner of Rue Yves Saint Laurent – just down the street from the colourful gardens of Jardin Majorelle. The museum’s many galleries are filled with the designer’s magnificent creations, while the walls are adorned with thousands of drawings and photos depicting the rich history of the couture house. It’s safe to say that a trip to Marrakech is simply incomplete without a visit to this 20th century fashion monument.
