As a great couturier, Yves Saint Laurent constantly sought to invent new shapes. As early as 1958, as artistic director at Christian Dior, he affirmed his modernity by creating the line of clothing called "Trapèze". This geometric silhouette has become iconic and marked the history of fashion. From the 1960s, his creations combined simple cuts, rigorous lines and bold colors.
The couturier played with geometry, creating modern and radical shapes. Whether curves or right angles, spheres or broken lines, these different forms of clothing and graphic arts from the museum's collections dialogue with the works and decors of Claudia Wieser.
Known for her immersive and contemplative installations, Wieser presents here a set of pieces, some of which are unpublished.
This original experience definitively anchors the genius of Yves Saint Laurent in our contemporary era.
