Saint Laurent

When Yves Saint Laurent meets Loulou de la Falaise in 1968, he has gained popularity thanks to his precocious talent displayed at Christian Dior and to the opening of his very own fashion house but he lacks the nonchalant allure she will soon provide him with. A bohemian aristocrat who introduces him to a joyful and extravagant Parisian tribe that dances in gay clubs or at the Palace as well as Studio 54 and experiments with drugs in Marrakech with Andy Warhol, the Rolling Stones and Talitha Getty. He frees himself from constraints and establishes the identity of a liberated Parisienne inspired by Loulou de la Falaise and her gypsy allure alongside Betty Catroux, his rock n’roll ‘twin’. Pierre Bergé observes the decadent party from a distant eye but scowls Yves Saint Laurent and his turbulent friends like children, unruly children that revolutionized fashion and enjoyed life to its extreme, unaware of the terrible hangover awaiting for them.
