EXPOSITION YVES SAINT LAURENT : TRANSPARENCES

The Museum of Lace and Fashion in Calais, France, is to hosting an exhibition dedicated to the work of French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, co-produced with the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Paris.

‘Yves Saint Laurent: Transparencies’ will run at the Museum of Lace and Fashion from June 24 to November 12, 2023, before moving to the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Paris from the beginning of 2024.

The exhibition will focus on the theme of transparency, showcasing more than sixty pieces from the Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent Foundation and the Museum of Lace and Fashion collections that highlight how much the couturier has been able “to overturn the codes of the unveiling of the female body”.

The exhibit aims to demonstrate how Yves Saint Laurent used the effects of transparency of fabrics “to propose a new, powerful, and sensual female figure,” and will feature garments covering more than four decades from the couturier alongside accessories, drawings, photographs and videos.
