Pierre Berge, 1930 – 2017

Pierre Berge, the driving force behind Yves Saint Laurent, died earlier today at the age of 86. Berge built the YSL fashion empire and went on to become one of France’s most influential figures in the worlds of fashion, art, business, and even politics.

Pierre and Yves’ tumultuous love affair ended in a civil union a few days before Yves died of a brain tumour in 2008.

Two museums founded by Berge dedicated to the work of Yves Saint Laurent are scheduled to open in Paris and Marrakesh, later this year.
