In 1967, in the heart of the Parisian night, Yves Saint Laurent met his female double, Betty Catroux. So a model at Chanel, she embodies better than anyone, in the eyes of the designer, the androgynous woman and a certain feminine ideal that he stages in his fashion shows. Until the creator's death, she will remain one of her closest friends and will be the only one who can keep prototypes of each collection. This is part of these 1,200 pieces (clothing and accessories) collected by Betty Catroux over the years which have been selected by Anthony Vaccarello (current artistic director of Saint Laurent) to be presented at the Yves Saint Laurent Paris museum. More than a collection, this work allows you to discover the "Betty Catroux style" through archival photographs, sketches of the creator, a portrait written by Olivier Lalanne (editor-in-chief of Vogue Hommes) as well as an interview between Betty Catroux and Anthony Vaccarello directed by Loïc Prigent.
