YSL- MARRAKECH MUSEUM

The Yves Saint Laurent museum opened in Marrakech, a city that had a strong influence on him through-out his career. His former business partner and life partner, Pierre Bergé, oversaw the museum inception and construction until his passing a month before the museums opening on October 19, 2017.

It was designed by Studio KO (founded by Olivier Marty & Karl Fournier) and according to The Guardian the architects design intent was for “the exterior to evoke the ‘weft and warp of fabric’ while the interior is designed to evoke the lining of a couture jacket, ‘velvety, smooth and radiant.'”

There is a research library with over 6,000 books, a bookshop, 150-seat auditorium (named after Pierre Bergé) and a cafe named Le Studio after YSL’s Paris office. Displayed is a collection of clothing from over the decades and thousands of drawings/photos depicting the fashion houses history. This museum also has a rather large storage space for over 4,000 items.

Studio KO did an amazing job of keeping true to morocco’s design environment while taking careful attention to minute details as YSL did with all his designs. It is a true modern beauty!!

EMMANUELLE

This YSL Emmanuelle fringe bag is perfect for summer. The bucket bag is a classic shape and its mini size is currently in vogue. I personally have been liking mini’s and find them to be quite roomy. My friends are always stunned by how much I carry in my mini. They call mine the ‘Mary Poppin’s’ bag!! This purse is amazing and even better because it has the same name as one of my closest and dearest friends.
