Yves Saint Laurent: A Moroccan Passion
He recalls his arrival in Marrakech with Yves Saint Laurent in 1966, those first rainy days, their first home purchased together, their exploration of Morocco and its fascinating light. He remembers friends–Loulou de La Falaise, Fernando Sanchez, Andy Warhol, Betty Catroux–who, like them, chose to live in Morocco, or who accompanied them on this adventure filled with love and beautiful moments. He awakens the past with personal photographs, many published for the first time and drawings and watercolours by Lawrence Mynott, which evoke the magic of Morocco. This moving, intimate book, bound to resemble a leather journal, offers a rare glimpse into the personal life of the celebrated designer, revealing how Morocco’s vibrant culture and extraordinary landscapes inspired some of YSL’s greatest collections.
