Nobody’s ever accused me of being a fashionista. But if you are, or just like me are an aficionado of fashion history, there’s a new museum in Paris that should be on your must-do list: Musée Yves Saint Laurent. This small new addition to the Paris museum scene is the first museum in Paris devoted to the life and work of a single fashion designer, the legendary Yves Saint Laurent.
The elegant building that houses Musée Yves Saint Laurent is actually the designer’s original Paris haute couture house. Since the retirement of Yves Saint Laurent in 2002, the building has become first the headquarters of Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent and, since Fall of 2017, is now also a museum.
