Style is Eternal

Selvedge

It is rare for such a grand and high profile exhibition to be hosted outside of a major city in the U.K. The Bowes Museum in County Durham is both a refreshing and completely fitting venue for the UK's first retrospective of Yves Saint Laurent's work. (23) Haute Couture Collection, Fall-Winter 1976 The Bowes Museum was originally conceived by John and Josephine Bowes as a way of sharing with people in Teesdale the arts and wonders that they collected from the rest of the world. Built in the manner of an 18th century French chateau, the Bowes Museum has a Disney like appearance and houses a wardrobe collection dating back to the Second Empire – making it a more than appropriate setting for Saint Laurent's creations. Caption for this one:Haute Couture Collection, Spring-Summer 1988 See Saint Laurent's iconic designs, such as Le smoking tuxedo, the Mondrian dress and pieces from the Russian collection alongside clothes from the Bowes' own archives. The exhibition forms a rich and original fashion conversation. www.thebowesmuseum.org.uk Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal 11 July – 25 October 2015 REWyANrk3OI7vDfeok23xVjyDG4gO61UqJfVkgit_wY
