READING: Asia has long fascinated European artists. The gradual arrival of art objects and textiles from the Orient were inexhaustible sources of inspiration for painters, sculptors and of course couturiers. Yves Saint Laurent was no exception. He proposed both a literal and imaginary vision of Asia, based on a solid knowledge of its history, culture and arts, as evidenced by his personal library and the collection of works of art that he brought together with Pierre Bergé. Yves Saint Laurent_s exhibition Dreams of the Orient brings together some fifty models, accompanied by original drawings, jewelry and Asian objects that will demonstrate the process of creating clothes while establishing a visual link with their sources of inspiration. Objects from the Musée Guimet in Paris (Asian Arts Museum) and the Samuel Myers collection will be on display alongside the designer_s creations

READING: An authoritative book published in collaboration with Christie's, featuring photographs of the Berg�-Saint Laurent collection in situ, complete with estimated value information and final auction prices. In February 2009, 733 pieces from Pierre Berg� and Yves Saint Laurent's art collection--one of the largest private collections in the world--was auctioned off in a record-breaking sale of the century. Modern paintings, baroque bronzes, antique silverware and statues, cameos, and minerals comprise this diverse collection that furnished Berg�'s and Saint Laurent's two luxurious residences in the 6th arrondissement in Paris, and included major works by Picasso, Brancusi, Matisse, and Mondrian, in addition to furniture by the Art Deco masters Eileen Gray and Jean Dunand. Many works sold for prices far above the highest estimates, making this the most important European auction to date. The five-volume catalog published by Christie's for the event sold out before the end of the auction, leaving collectors and art connoisseurs the world over empty-handed. Flammarion presents a new volume featuring photographs of this fabulous collection in situ in Berg�'s and Saint Laurent's two Parisian residences and highlights one hundred of the most important pieces with detailed commentaries by Christie's experts. An introduction by Christie's vice president Fran�ois de Ricql�s revisits the intense three-day auction at the Grand Palais that set a new standard in the history of the art market. An illustrated appendix includes images of the works sold, accompanied by their estimated values and final auction prices. This visually stunning and informative volume is a must-have for art lovers and serious collectors. Publication coincides with the auction of the Berg�-Saint Laurent collection at Ch�teau Gabriel in October 2009.

READING: Yves Saint Laurent is a name synonymous with style, elegance, and high fashion. When he came on the scene at Dior and then started his own line, he quickly changed the way people regarded haute couture and the world of fashion itself. He revolutionized women's evening wear when he introduced Le Smoking, a woman's tuxedo, and made couture accessible to a younger generation.Yves Saint Laurent is Roxanne Lowit's personal photographic history of Saint Laurent, the man and the fashion, from 1978, the year she first met him, to the last show he gave in 2002. With contributions from YSL's muses and admirers, including Catherine Deneuve, Betty Catroux, Lucie de la Falaise, Pat Cleveland, and Valerie Steele, this reduced format hardcover represents the backstage experience at YSL's shows as Lowit saw them herself. Whether surrounded by beautiful models or peeking at the catwalk from the wings, every moment was a magnificent photo opportunity.

READING: This definitive portrait of the creative genius who transformed fashion is the first major English-language biography of Yves Saint Laurent since his death in 2008, featuring exclusive interviews of those who knew him best, by one of the most respected names in French fashion. Yves Saint Laurent's impact on fashion is legendary, yet he remains an enigmatic and compelling figure. Tracing the development of Saint Laurent's visionary work through his charmed yet tumultuous life, respected fashion writer Laurence Benaïm's newly translated and updated biography of the famed designer explores how this unassuming prodigy became a legendary, celebrated public icon who changed the face of fashion, style, and celebrity. Enriched by the author's exclusive interviews--from Saint Laurent's partner Pierre Bergé to family members, his atelier staff, and muses such as Catherine Deneueve, LouLou de la Falaise, and Paloma Picasso--this fascinating biography chronicles early glimpses of Saint Laurent's talent in Oran and his star trajectory, from leading the House of Dior at the age of twenty-one to his fall from grace and subsequent forging with Pierre Bergé, fashion's most enduring and successful professional partnership. In portraying the man behind the timeless icons of the Mondrian-print shift dress and the Le Smoking trouser suit--who partied with Warhol in New York and relaxed with the jet set in his Marrakesh hideaway--Benaïm powerfully illuminates both the glittering world of haute couture and the business empire that revolutionized the fashion industry.

READING: Originally born in Algeria, Yves Saint Laurent moved to Paris when he was 18, and only three years later he was handpicked by Christian Dior to take the reins as designer of his fashion house. Over time, Saint Laurent resurrected haute couture from the casual mores that predominated in the 1960s, but also offered chic cachet to ready-to-wear clothing. He was among the earliest of designers to incorporate non-European references into his work, and in 1983 he became the first living designer to be feted with a solo exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Vogue on Yves Saint Laurent is a stellar volume in the series from the editors of British Vogue, featuring 20,000 words of original biography and history and studded with more than 80 images from their unique archive of images taken by leading photographers.
