The extraordinary art collection of the late fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his longterm partner, Pierre Bergé,goes on public display at Christie's in London today, before being auctioned in Paris in late February. It is estimated that the auction will fetch €300m ($385m), with all proceeds going to scientific and Aids research. Catch a glimpse of some of the wonders here at The Guardian and here at Vanity Fair. The magazine is showing a great photo gallery where you can see the inside of YSL's Paris duplex on the Rue de Babylone. The couple owned so many objects, that I don't think there is an inch left on tables or shelves. The appartment almost feels like the inside of an antique shop. Very very interesting.
