Yves Saint Laurent Retrospective [Madrid]

Fundación Mapfre, in collaboration with the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent, presented last October an exhibition that lasted until January called "Yves Saint Laurent Retrospective". This major exhibition, which was shown at the Petit Palais in Paris in 2010 offered a fascinating insight into a career that spanned forty years of creativity.
The exhibition was organised thematically into eleven sections and featured approximately 150 examples of haute couture and prêt-à-porter, as well as more than 80 drawings, photographs and films.
The exhibition reviewed the life and work of this designer, starting with the famous "Trapeze Line" collection created for Dior and concluding with his magnificent evening gowns and the explosion of colour that situates his work in the present day.

Imaginary Journeys
"I use my imagination on countries I don't know," Saint Laurent once said. "I hate travelling. If I read a book about India, with photos, or Egypt, where I've never been, my imagination runs away with me. That's how I make my most marvelous voyages."
