"This unique ensemble presents forty years of Saint Laurent’s design: all 81 couture collections presented in 1,283 production drawings. From the Mondrian dress of 1965 to the “Forties” collections that caused a scandal in 1971, from the 1976 'Russian' collection to the homage to Vincent van Gogh in 1988, each design is presented on large format loose sheets, housed in four brown linen clamshell cases, documenting the sketches and fabric samples. Each production drawing includes the name of the couture atelier that produced the piece, the name of the model who wore it, and the garment’s runway order.
The entire wardrobe is arranged from day wear to evening wear, including the pea jacket, the safari jacket, the tuxedo and the wedding dress. The production drawings are accompanied by a slipcased 96-page bilingual volume with the viewing guide, the show programs, a preface by Pierre Berge and photographs of Yves Saint Laurent in his studio."
