A Couture Comeback and a Major Retrospective Sees an Yves Saint Laurent Renaissance

Yves Saint Laurent is having a renaissance. After a decade away the French fashion house is returning to the couture runways under the stewardship of Hedi Slimane with a collection produced at the brand’s new atelier in Paris. Though not showing as part of the couture schedule, the collection, that will include pieces for both men and women and feature the hand sewn ivory satin ‘Yves Saint Laurent’ couture label, will be supported with a black and white ad campaign shot by Slimane himself.

This month, YSL’s famous founder also becomes the subject of a new exhibition celebrating his defining fashion moments, unique vision and influence on womenswear. Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal at The Bowes Museum in Durham, is the first comprehensive display of the designer’s work ever to be exhibited in the UK. Presenting 50 career defining pieces from the Russian Collection, the Mondrian dresses and the Tuxedo, this major retrospective features the different eras and diverse influences that made a fashion legend.

Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal at The Bowes Museum, Durham, UK from the 11th July to the 25th October
