A couple of nights ago, I watched a beautiful documentary about the 50 year relationship between Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre BergÃ©. They met when Yves was only 21 yrs old and head designer at Christian Dior.
It was a poignant story weaving back and forth between their personal and professional lives together and the present day, months after Yves’ death, as Mr. BergÃ© was preparing for the Christie’s auction of their massive art collection.
The final scene of the film was the auction, which took place in February 2009 and had a total sale of â‚¬342m. All of the proceeds of the sale were used to benefit the Pierre BergÃ© – Yves Saint Laurent Foundation and a new foundation for scientific research and the fight against AIDS.
