On the Rue Yves Saint Laurent in Marrakech
The exhibition itself is very calm with an obvious connection between the artist and the Moroccan culture. Not a huge collection and does not overwhelm, but lovely all the same. As I walk the museum it is pleasant to imagine how along the dusty narrow streets to the zouk haute couture was born. And there are some beautiful creations on show, I like very much the blouse with puffed sleeves with draped skirt and Moroccan hat with tassels. Must have been very innovative back in the ‘60’s. Very Bohemian!
On the walls you see quotes of YSL projected. For example this one I like very much ‘Without elegance of the heart, there is no elegance’. ‘Fashions fade, style is eternal ‘.
The influence that he made for women is very evident here. Just think of the tuxedo for women, oh so sexy! The photo of Catherine Deneuve his muse in it front of the zoek is a classic one.
“Marrakech taught me color”. Yves Saint Laurent.
As I am very much fond of primary bright colors I am dressing in my Marrakesh (really has the name) dress from J.Crew collection with Castaner espadrilles my Sunglasses are from ILLESTEVA the round-frame acetate and gold-tone is my current favorite. My KAYU leather-trimmed fringed straw tote in rainbow colors in my opinion complimenting the surroundings.
And for those of you who are fortunate enough to visit the YSL museum and iconic gardens in Marrakech, the Majorelle Gardens in the near future. Do not forget to pay a visit to the Berber Museum and charming restaurant on site.
Oh and arrive nice an early for the maximum tranquility!!
