The Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent presents the exceptional heritage of the iconic designer by unveiling 1283 drawings from 81 Haute Couture collections, presented from 1962 to 2002...

Carefully preserved by the foundation that keeps the history of the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house alive, the designer's fashion drawings were an integral part of his 40 years in the creative industry, and are now available to purchase for €1,700 from The Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent's website. 

The beautiful book set features drawings that Saint Laurent drew during his iconic career, from the Mondrian dress in 1965 and the Collection 40 in 1971, to the pieces that paid homage to Vincent van Gogh in 1988. Inside L’Oeuvre Integral each look is presented by a pencil sketch accompanied by the fabric sample in which it was made.
