The muse and friend of Yves Saint Laurent, the fashion designer, opens her wardrobe for the next exhibition dedicated to the couturier.
Saint Laurent and Betty Catroux. The muse and friend of Yves Saint Laurent, the fashion designer, opens her wardrobe for the next exhibition in Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, opened until 11 of October.
The exhibition will be focused on how Catroux wear designer’s garments. From black leather to safari jackets, the collection will be driven by androgyny likes of the muse, usually in black color: “always been captivated by what is masculine”, stated in a press conference in 2014.
Anthony Vaccarello, creative director of the brand, was given carte blanche to select the pictures, photographs and pieces. The exhibition will also have a book in which the designer explains that this exhibition is absolutely not meant to be a statement on how to become the Saint Laurent woman.
The current Saint Laurent designer has had Catroux as inspirations, turning the classic YSL girl’s version into the new millennial era. “More than chic, more than just a body, Betty incarnates that shadow, full of tension and enigma, at the core of every one of us”.
