YSL: Style Is Eternal

Book Design

Le catalogue est magnifique – Pierre Bergé


We tailor-made a highly tactile and suitably desirable book for Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal – the first retrospective of the fashion designer’s work ever held in the UK.

The challenge for us was to create an extraordinary, highly desirable book that matched the argument, the ambition and the aesthetic of the Bowes Museum’s stunning exhibition on the French couturier. We wanted the book to become a souvenir of an idea, rather than just an assemblage of photographs and information. We therefore designed the book as something both useful and beautiful, rooted in the authenticity of Yves Saint Laurent’s visual and verbal worldview.
