Abrams Books The Private World Of Yves Saint Laurent And Pierre Berg
One of the most talented and influential couturiers of his time, Yves Saint Laurent began his career as Christian Dior's protégé and went on to become a legendary arbiter of twentieth-century style. Saint Laurent's extraordinary taste went well beyond the world of fashion, and in this lavish volume, the eight splendid homes he shared with friend and lifelong business partner Pierre Bergé are presented in immaculate detail. Notoriously shy, the designer and Bergé lived in luxury, surrounded by incomparable collections of furniture and art. From the serene interiors of their apartment on the Rue Babylone to the incandescent beauty of the Villa Majorelle in Marrakech, Bergé and Saint Laurent's sensibilities come alive. Taken after Saint Laurent's death in 2008, Ivan Terestchenko's photographs capture these exquisite surroundings in full, showcasing nineteenth-century French décor, important paintings by modern and Romantic artists, and masterpieces of furniture, sculpture, and silver ranging from the Renaissance to the Art Deco era. Though the homes presented here are now empty,The Private World of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé is a testament to a rare union of passion, elegance, and supreme connoisseurship.FeaturesHardcover - 280 pages.Publisher - Vendome Press; 1st edition (September 1, 2009).Language - English.Author - Robert Murphy.Photographer - Ivan Terestchenko.Dimension - 1.25 x 11.5 x 12.63 in.Item Weight - 5.44 lbs.
