Sheer - Yves Saint Laurent

Showcasing more than sixty pieces from the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation and the Museum of Lace and Fashion collections, Sheer: Yves Saint Laurent highlights the designer’s mastery over transparent fabrics.

Published to celebrate a major exhibition at the Museum of Lace and Fashion, Calais, and Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, this book will highlight Yves Saint Laurent’s pioneering work in lace and other sheer fabrics, revealing how the couturier was able to overturn codes of unveiling the female body.

Through some sixty beautifully photographed examples from the collections of the Pierre Bergé–Yves Saint Laurent Foundation and the Museum of Lace and Fashion, as well as drawings, photographs, and videos, Sheer demonstrates how Saint Laurent knew the effects of transparent fabrics and how to use them to present a new, powerful, and sensual feminine figure.
