    ABOUT BETTY CATROUX – YVES SAINT LAURENT FEMININE SINGULAR EXHIBITON

    SAINT LAURENT PARIS IN COLLABORATION WITH THE FONDATION PIERRE BERGÉ - YVES SAINT LAURENT PRESENTS BETTY CATROUX, YVES SAINT LAURENT, FEMININE SINGULAR FROM NOVEMBER 19TH 2022 TO DECEMBER 11TH 2022 AT THE B&C HALL IN TOKYO. THIS TOURING EXHIBITION WAS HOSTED FROM MARCH 3RD 2020 TO MAY 9TH 2021 AT THE YVES SAINT LAURENT MUSEUM IN PARIS AND FROM JUNE 18TH TO AUGUST 15TH 2021 AT THE SHANGHAI MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART.

    IN 1962, YVES SAINT LAURENT (1936-2008) AND PIERRE BERGÉ (1930-2017) LAUNCHED THE COUTURE HOUSE, WHICH THEY SETTLED IN A HÔTEL PARTICULIER AT THE 5 AVENUE MARCEAU IN 1974. IN 1999, THE READY-TO-WEAR DIVISION OF THE HOUSE WAS SOLD TO THE KERING GROUP, CURRENT OWNER OF THE SAINT LAURENT BRAND.

    THE HAUTE COUTURE DIVISION STILL LOCATED AVENUE MARCEAU CLOSED ITS DOORS IN 2002 TO BECOME THE FONDATION PIERRE BERGÉ – YVES SAINT LAURENT; RECOGNIZED TO BE OF PUBLIC UTILITY, THE FONDATION IS PRIMARILY DESIGNED TO PRESERVE THE WORK OF THE COUTURIER AND ITS INFLUENCE. IN 2016, THE FONDATION CLOSED ITS DOORS AND TURNED ITSELF INTO A MUSEUM WHICH OPENED IN 2017.

    IN 2018, ANTHONY VACCARELLO, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF SAINT LAURENT, PUT BETTY CATROUX IN THE SPOTLIGHT FOR THE FALL-WINTER CAMPAIGN, SHOT BY DAVID SIMS.

    IN 2019, BETTY CATROUX MADE AN EXCEPTIONAL DONATION OF 500 PIECES TO THE FONDATION PIERRE BERGÉ – YVES SAINT LAURENT.

    SHORTLY AFTER, MADISON COX, PRESIDENT OF THE FONDATION AND SAINT LAURENT PARIS HAVE DECIDED TO IMAGINE THIS EXCEPTIONAL EXHIBITION DEDICATED TO BETTY CATROUX. THEY GAVE A “CARTE BLANCHE” TO ANTHONY VACCARELLO, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF SAINT LAURENT. ANTHONY VACCARELLO’S POINT OF VIEW ON BETTY CATROUX’ WARDROBE IS VERY INSIGHTFUL, REVEALING HER UNIQUE PERSONALITY AND HER ENDURING INFLUENCE UPON THE STYLE KEPT ALIVE BY THE BRAND.

    THE EXHIBITION PAYS HOMAGE TO THAT FASHION ICON AND “FEMININE DOUBLE” OF YVES SAINT LAURENT, THE PERFECT INCARNATION OF THE MODERN WOMAN AND HER STYLE.THE EXHIBITION PAYS HOMAGE TO THAT FASHION ICON AND “FEMININE DOUBLE” OF YVES SAINT LAURENT, THE PERFECT INCARNATION OF THE MODERN WOMAN AND HER STYLE.
