Despite his doubts and own demons, Yves Saint Laurent revolutionised the world of fashion, competing with his friend and fellow designer Karl Lagerfeld for many decades. YVES SAINT LAURENT tells an epic odyssey of creation, love, glamour and fashion. It gives us a privileged insight into the mind and life of one of the greatest artists, designers and visionaries of our time, culminating in the acclaimed 1976 Ballets Russes Collection.
The film received the full support of Pierre Bergé himself and the Foundation of Yves Saint Laurent, allowing the filmmakers to utilise original YSL fashion and designs and to film inside Laurent's opulent homes from Paris to Marrakech.
YVES SAINT LAURENT opened the Panorama section of the Berlin Film Festival.
