An authoritative book published in collaboration with Christie's, featuring photographs of the Berg�-Saint Laurent collection in situ, complete with estimated value information and final auction prices. In February 2009, 733 pieces from Pierre Berg� and Yves Saint Laurent's art collection--one of the largest private collections in the world--was auctioned off in a record-breaking sale of the century. Modern paintings, baroque bronzes, antique silverware and statues, cameos, and minerals comprise this diverse collection that furnished Berg�'s and Saint Laurent's two luxurious residences in the 6th arrondissement in Paris, and included major works by Picasso, Brancusi, Matisse, and Mondrian, in addition to furniture by the Art Deco masters Eileen Gray and Jean Dunand. Many works sold for prices far above the highest estimates, making this the most important European auction to date. The five-volume catalog published by Christie's for the event sold out before the end of the auction, leaving collectors and art connoisseurs the world over empty-handed. Flammarion presents a new volume featuring photographs of this fabulous collection in situ in Berg�'s and Saint Laurent's two Parisian residences and highlights one hundred of the most important pieces with detailed commentaries by Christie's experts. An introduction by Christie's vice president Fran�ois de Ricql�s revisits the intense three-day auction at the Grand Palais that set a new standard in the history of the art market. An illustrated appendix includes images of the works sold, accompanied by their estimated values and final auction prices. This visually stunning and informative volume is a must-have for art lovers and serious collectors. Publication coincides with the auction of the Berg�-Saint Laurent collection at Ch�teau Gabriel in October 2009.

On January 21, 1971, couturier Yves Saint Laurent presented his Spring-Summer haute couture collection. Inspired by the garments of the war years, the collection included short dresses, platform shoes, square shoulders, and exaggerated makeup. The show caused an outrage among the public, the critics, and the press alike, earning it the title of Paris s ugliest collection. Nevertheless, the haute couture designs of the runway made their way to the boulevards, giving full sway to the retro trend that quickly conquered the streets. "Yves Saint Laurent: The Scandal Collection, 1971" offers a behind-the-scenes look at the influential collection that drew fire in the fashion world from the collection s inspiration to the press coverage that followed. Beautifully illustrated and documented with well-researched essays, this book is enriched with personal interviews and archival photographs of the show, the models, the designs, and the textile and print samples, as well as sketches and international press clippings."

Asia has long fascinated European artists. The gradual arrival of art objects and textiles from the Orient were inexhaustible sources of inspiration for painters, sculptors and of course couturiers. Yves Saint Laurent was no exception. He proposed both a literal and imaginary vision of Asia, based on a solid knowledge of its history, culture and arts, as evidenced by his personal library and the collection of works of art that he brought together with Pierre Bergé. Yves Saint Laurent_s exhibition Dreams of the Orient brings together some fifty models, accompanied by original drawings, jewelry and Asian objects that will demonstrate the process of creating clothes while establishing a visual link with their sources of inspiration. Objects from the Musée Guimet in Paris (Asian Arts Museum) and the Samuel Myers collection will be on display alongside the designer_s creations
