This captivating museum showcases finely selected collections of haute couture clothing and accessories that span 40 years of creative work by legendary French fashion designer Yves St Laurent. The aesthetically warped and wefted building designed by Studio KO resembles woven fabric and holds a 150-seat auditorium, research library, bookstore and terrace cafe serving light snacks. Culture buffs will easily spend more than an afternoon here.
