The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris reopened its doors in October, 2020, showcasing Betty Catroux, Yves Saint Laurent – Feminine Singular exhibition. The pieces displayed in the exhibition come from a major donation Betty Catroux made to the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, which is the largest ever received and particularly significant because these pieces embody both the signature style that Yves Saint Laurent continually upheld and his strong bond with Betty Catroux.

Madison Cox, president of the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, gave Anthony Vaccarello carte blanche for this exhibition to be held at the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris. Anthony Vaccarello, Saint Laurent’s artistic director, approaches Betty Catroux’s wardrobe from an aesthetic perspective by selecting the pieces that best reveal her unique personality and ongoing influence on the label’s signature style.

Published by Gallimard, the exhibition catalogue is the first monograph dedicated to fashion icon Betty Catroux. It includes never-before-seen documents and images. Available at the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Paris. Also, a unique book published by Saint Laurent Rive Droite editions and designed by Anthony Vaccarello retracing Betty Catroux’s exhibition in photos will be sold exclusively at the Saint Laurent Rive Droite store in Paris.

Over fifteen years after the haute couture house closed, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris opened in 2017. It is located in the legendary hôtel particulier at 5 avenue Marceau where Yves Saint Laurent spent nearly thirty years designing his collections from 1974 to 2002. Across 450 m2, an ever-changing rotation of retrospective displays and temporary thematic exhibitions present the Fondation’s rich and unique collection. 

The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris is the first museum of this scale dedicated to the work of one of the twentieth century’s greatest couturiers to open in the capital of fashion. It was granted the Appellation ‘Musée de France’ by the French Ministry of Culture.

    When 30-year-old Yves Saint Laurent ventured to Marrakesh for the first time in 1966, he became so infatuated with the ‘red city’ that he often returned with his long term companion and business partner, Pierre Bergé, eventually buying a home that once belonged to painter Jacques Majorelle.
