The Musée Yves Saint-Laurent has long been a focal point for fashion lovers and artists within this industry. They always know how to celebrate a subject and bring their work to fresh eyes in an interesting way.
In 2020, the spotlight falls on a model, rather than a designer. This is an interesting take because the women in question, Betty Catroux, was a long-time muse of Yves Saint-Laurent. Therefore, you just know that she would have had some of the best outfits.
Betty Catroux. Feminine Singular takes a look at Yves Saint-Laurent’s fascination with her androgynous form and brings together 50 outfits created for her. There are also interesting pictures and documents that add layers to the dynamic of their relationship, a relationship that was an important part of the brand.
This is sure to be a must-see show for fashion lovers when the museum reopens this year. Pencil it into your diaries!
The Musée Yves Saint Laurent is expected to reopen by Fall 2020.
