Musée Yves Saint Laurent , Marrakech: nearly 50 years after the designer’s first visit to Morocco, a museum honouring his oeuvre has opened just steps from the Jardin Majorelle, the villa’s botanical escape-cum-tourist attraction. The new, 43,000-square-foot building, designed by the Paris-based firm Studio KO, houses thousands of articles of clothing and haute couture accessories, all carefully selected by Pierre Bergé, Saint Laurent’s partner in business and in life.
