I spent today in Seattle with my daughter M, most of it at Seattle Art Museum (SAM), relishing the imagination, creativity, attention to detail, and sheer genius of fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
SAM has mounted an astounding show, "The Perfection of Style," with more than 100 garments designed by Saint Laurent over four decades. It's a trip down memory lane for those of us old enough to remember the late 1950s on, as well as a testament to his many talents.
I'm not a follower of fashion, but I do appreciate fine materials, refined design, meticulous attention to detail, and color. This show has all those in spades, and is well worth a visit before it closes on January 8, 2017.
Running out of "extra photos" capacity here, I've posted a few more images of Yves Saint Laurent's designs displayed at SAM on Flickr (click on the photos to see the captions), and one of M standing beside the famous 48-foot-tall (14.6 m) Hammering Man statue outside the museum.
I'll catch up with you all over the next couple of days!
