Now Reading: The New Musée Yves Saint Laurent [Marrakech]
Written 5 months ago by
There’s a new must-do in our favorite Moroccan city, Marrakech : the Musée Yves Saint Laurent, which opens this week, moments after its big sister museum arrived in Paris.
The red brick beauty was created by architectural firm Studio KO, and is a soft, organic space with an entrance inspired by both James Turrell and Moroccan courtyards and their unobstructed views onto big skies (practically always blue here).
The new Yves Saint Laurent museum is on the same site as the Jardin Majorelle and the Berber Museum, creating a seamless fashion, culture and botanical complex of easy pleasure. There are rooms for YSL’s haute couture, archive sketches, old photos and his stage and film work (from the ballet to French screen and pop idol Johnny Hallyday).
