‘Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective’ at the Denver Art Museum

“Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective” opened this past weekend at the Denver Art Museum. It’s a stunning look at the work of the influential French designer who was famous for using elements of men’s clothing in women’s fashion. Among other things, he is credited with popularizing the tuxedo suit, safari jacket and pea coat in the 1960s and ’70s.

Museum director Christoph Heinrich and exhibit curator Florence Muller gave Art Beat a tour of the show, which will remain at the museum through July 8.
