Hello dear readers. This post comes some ten days after my return from Paris where I quite luckily took in this exhibition at the Fondation Pierre Berge - Yves Saint Laurent. Long time readers are more than familiar with my posts and mini obsession with the collecting prowess of Jacques Doucet. This exhibition made links between the two couturiers and their voracious collecting habits that were largely against the grain and were testaments to their forward thinking visions. I came across the press release for the show some months ago and it appeared to highlight about twenty works and I thought it would be a fairly modest yet interesting showing. I was pleasantly surprised by what the Fondation PB-YSL was able to achieve.
