Yves Saint Laurent: Dreams of the Orient


A unique visual journey exploring Asia’s influence on Yves Saint Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent’s exhibition Dreams of the Orient brings together some fifty models, accompanied by original drawings, jewelry and Asian objects that will demonstrate the process of creating clothes while establishing a visual link with their sources of inspiration. Objects from the Musée Guimet in Paris (Asian Arts Museum) and the Samuel Myers collection will be on display alongside the designer’s creations
