Tournage YSL

Set against the beautiful backdrop of Paris in 1957, the film tells the heady story of Yves Saint Laurent, played by Pierre Niney, and his lover Pierre Bergé, played by Guillaume Gallienne. Together as both business partners, soul-mates and eventually Pierre taking the role of carer to the troubled and reckless Yves, the film delves into the personal and creative life of the young designer.

The imagery is as stunning as you can imagine, featuring the original YSL garden in Marrakech, Morocco and various evocative scenes across Paris.  Original couture pieces from the YSL archives feature throughout the film, with a cast decked-out in a film wardrobe to die for. The full effect of the movie, creates a rich and idealistic story of the making of an internationally acclaimed fashion brand and how a designers relationship with their models, staff, friends and the people surrounding him / her can make or break a career.

Yves Saint Laurent, is portrayed as a creative genius, a tortured artist and a revolutionary designer, with Pierre as the rock that held the entire show (and Yves life) together season after season. Although this story sometimes glosses over some of Yves’ life and fails to explore what happens after he and Pierre separated, it’s worth seeing for the beautiful scenery, the costumes, and a deeper understanding into one of the greatest designers of our time.

Directed by Jalil Lespert

With Pierre Niney de La Comédie-Française, Guillaume Gallienne de la Comédie-Française, Charlotte Le Bon, Laura Smet and Marie de Villepin

YVES SAINT LAURENT is released in cinemas across the UK on 21st March 2014

Yves Saint Laurent - L'Amour Fou

Released in cinemas earlier this year and now coming to DVD on Nov 21,Pierre Thoretton’s documentary L’Amour Fou follows the 50-year relationship between fashion legend Yves Saint Laurent and his lover/business partner Pierre Bergé.

In Pierre Thoretton’s L’AMOUR FOU, Pierre Bergé, the man with which YSL shared four decades of his life and love, reflects on the equally extravagant history of their personal relationship. Framed around the 2009 auction of the priceless, elaborate art collection amassed by Yves and Pierre personally over several decades, this extraordinary documentary provides an unprecedented look at the life of a mythic personality, whose personal life matched his public for elegance, extravagance and passion.

Yves Saint Laurent Coloring Book

If you’re in university like me, you’re probably spending your time juggling end-of-term duties and final exams. What better way to de-stress than with the help of a Yves Saint Laurent coloring book? Yes, you heard right: The famed fashion house recently released a 40-page coloring book filled with dozens of previously-unpublished Yves Saint Laurent sketches. The book is broken down into chapters based on the themes of the garments featured. The chapter entitled “Extraordinary Voyages” features sketches that reference Laurent’s trips to the Orient, while “Winks with Art” boasts garments inspired by the works of Matisse, Picasso, and Mondrian, among others. And, in true haute couture style, the book closes with a wedding gown. Since the coloring book comes in two sizes, buyers have the option of choosing which one will fit best with their daily routines. The small, pocket-sized version is perfect for the on-the-go student, while the larger, “luxury” version is an ideal gift for the fashion enthusiast.

The Yves Saint Laurent coloring book is available for only £4.16 at Amazon.

Queen of Hoxton launches winter rooftop riad inspired by the Moroccan Medina

 

We’re excited to be going down to Tangier town tonight for the launch of Queen of Hoxton‘s winter rooftop launch. Inspired by the Moroccan Medina, the venue is set to be transformed into a little taste of Marrakech in London for the season. The rooftop bar will feature a mini-riad inside a custom-designed wigwam, replete with Baboushe slippers, ceramic tiles, twinkling lanterns, cushions and drapes.

 

 

Outside the wigwam itself, the rooftop bar has been completed revamped to replicate the sensations of the iconic Jardin Majorelle. We’re expecting blue walls, hanging plants, cacti in abundance – and swathes of Saint Laurent!

The Morrocan Medina inspired rooftop was orchestrated by Fables, the festival production team behind the notoriously decadent Secret Garden Party (RIP).
