A look at the life of French designer Yves Saint Laurent from the beginning of his career in 1958 when he met his lover and business partner, Pierre Berge.

In January 1958, Yves Saint Laurent (Pierre Niney) – aged merely 21 – was unexpectedly called upon to oversee the legendary Paris fashion house established by recently deceased Christian Dior. All eyes turned to this very young assistant as he presented his first collection for Dior and instantly ascended to the heights of haute couture’s elite class. During Saint Laurent’s breathtaking and groundbreaking show, he met with another fate in being introduced to Pierre Bergé (Guillaume Gallienne), patron of the arts, future love of his life and lifelong business partner. Three years later, the two founded the Yves Saint Laurent Company, which would rapidly become one of the biggest luxury powerhouses on the planet.

Directed by Jalil Lespert with a screenplay by Lespert and Marrie-Pierre Huster, YVES SAINT LAURENT is at once a captivating story about the making of an icon and a testament to the power of enduring love.

“Yves Saint Laurent gives us some idea of what it cost to be Yves Saint Laurent. But it also makes us feel for the guy who wasn’t ashamed to leave his fingerprints on the money.”
– VILLAGE VOICE

“Two transformative performances …”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Yves Saint Laurent does an effective job of condensing two decades in the life of the justly celebrated clothing designer into a series of pithy vignettes carried along by genuine emotion and a superb central performance.”
– SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

“Melancholy and elegiac in the most evocative of ways, Jalil Lespert’s biopic has brought the life of fashion genius Yves Saint Laurent to the screen in a way that manages to be ever-tasteful as well as piquantly provocative.”
– FILM JOURNAL INTERNATIONAL

“Hardcore fashionistas will doubtless flock to drool over the endless catwalk shows, packed with genuine YSL archive pieces.”
– TOTAL FILM

“Sews together both sides of the man: the fascinating, but chronically shy boy genius from French Algeria, and the moth-to-lightbulb hedonist who battled with self-doubt and self-destruction for most of his life.”
– THE LIST

“As elegant as the man’s clothes, this handsome biopic traces 20 incident-filled years in the life of the designer.”
– EMPIRE MAGAZINE
