Shot in Yves Saint Laurent's private residences in Paris, Marrekech and Deauville, and during the preparation of his latest haute couture collection, the film is a journey through the life and the work of this mythical designer.
Creations, selected from thirty years of collections and worn by his favourite models, appear and fade away: ephemeral works of art that trace the history of fashion and reveal the artistic, literary and musical influences which have inspired their creator.
The narrative, spoken by Yves Saint Laurent and Jeanne Moreau, tells of his life: joys, sorrows, fears and hopes. He reflects upon the past and the future with tenderness and lucidity but also with severity.
"I invented the modern woman's past, I offered her her future, and that will last long after my death." YSL
