As Yves Saint Laurent, one of the greatest Parisian haute couture designers, draws the sketches for his final collection, behind the scenes, Pierre Bergé manages a series of events to celebrate the fashion icon as a modern myth. Immersed inside the couture house during YSL’s final two years there, documentary filmmaker Olivier Meyrou’s camera films the YSL-Bergé duo. The film was originally presented in the Panorama section of the 57th Berlin International Film Festival in 2007. Pierre Bergé, co-founder of the Yves Saint Laurent couture house, banned the public release of the documentary film during his living. The 2018 film is a re-edited version by the same director, Olivier Meyrou, to be released a decade after Yves Saint Laurent passed away.
