Yves Saint Laurent, the musical... Coming soon?
Yves Saint Laurent is one of the few designers that you could possibly attribute the troublesome title of genius to. His rapid ascension into the fashion world reads like the plot of a film, starting at Dior then ruffling feathers with his tuxedos and sexually charged collections, winning him the admiration of celebs and socialites alike.
It should come as only a trifling surprise then that his life is being made into a musical, made up of a singer-songwriter team Alain Chamfort and Pierre-Dominique Burgaud. Pierre Bergé, Yves Saint Laurent's partner has heard the songs and has apparently given the thumbs up to the production, saying: "They are very good," said Bergé. "They are moving." No date has been set for the musical, but you can guarantee CQ Towers are already planning a little Eurostar trip to Paris.
