Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris Recommended for those interested in fashion.

イヴサンローラン美術館paris

The Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris is a new museum that opened in Paris in 2017.

The word ‘museum’ gives the impression of a collection of famous paintings, but in fact the museum displays the various works and trajectories of Yves Saint Laurent, one of the most famous designers of the 20th century.

The museum is a must-visit for anyone interested in fashion, as it is full of the charms of the man who was known as the king of mode.

The boutique also sells limited-edition museum tote bags, which make very nice souvenirs.

You will easily recognise the staff standing there.

The overall impression is of a building with no particular features.

Summary

The Yves Saint Laurent Museum is a hot new spot in Paris.

The overall impression was, to be honest, a little underwhelming.

This is difficult to describe, but my impression is that the museum is more for people with some knowledge of clothing than for visual enjoyment.

It is more suitable for those working or studying in the clothing industry than for the general public.

I love fashion too, but I still get the impression that it is a bit of a specialised museum.

Recommended for those who have time to spare during their stay or who have been to Paris many times.

Thank you again for reading to the end of this issue.
