Fashion fades, style is eternalYves Saint Laurent once said fading into history. So it is no coincidence that his first solo exhibit in England is called: Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal (11 July – 25 August 2015).

Set in Bowes Museum in the North of the United Kingdom, built over 100 years ago by its owners (who were also collectors) in a French-style castle, the exhibit presents fifty of the most important garments in Yves’s vision: elements that still influence women’s fashion, organised into different exhibition areas, such as art, transparency and emancipation, that span his career.

They are marked by iconic pieces: the Mondrian dresses, tributes to Picasso, Matisse, Cocteau, Braque and Van Gogh, not to mention the legendary tuxedos, jumpsuits, safari jackets and pieces from the incredibly colourful “Russian Collection”.
