The rare catalogue for an exhibition at the Fondation Pierre Berge - Yves Saint Laurent examining the fashion relationship between Saint Laurent and Nan Kempner. Kempner was one of the best-dressed women in America during the second half of the twentieth century. As muse and patron of Saint Laurent she amassed a vast collection of his couture pieces. These are photographed here, alongside archival images of Kempner wearing Saint Laurent designs.
