Phaidon Chronicles the Development of the Yves Saint Laurent Museum Marrakech

Available in a standard and luxury option.

It’s well-recorded that Yves Saint Laurent had an affinity for Morroco’s pink city. “Marrakech taught me color,” he once recalled, adding that before, “everything was black.” This fascination led the late-designers co-founder, Pierre Bergé to build the serene Yves Saint Laurent Museum Marrakech.

Hailed as one of the most beautiful museums in the world, the project was built by Studio KO and was one of the last works Bergé commissioned before his passing. Phaidon has chronicled this development in a new book that documents the 1,423 days during which the museum was designed, built, and opened in 2017.

The publication opens with a heartfelt foreword by Bergé’s widow, Madison Cox. More than just showing an intimate partnership between Saint Laurent and Bergé, the book serves as “A warm tribute to Morocco. . . this elegant book traces the incredible artistic process that enabled a rough, candid sketch to metamorphose like a chrysalis into a bountiful and beautiful building,” said Cox.

Yves Saint Laurent Museum Marrakech is available in two options — standard for $49.95 USD and a luxury edition that comes packaged in a linen slipcase with gold edges for $150 USD.
