Get your tickets for YSL Denver now

Posted By on Tue, Jan 17, 2012 at 3:25 PM

Almost, I mean. Like, be ready Jan. 20 — this Friday — to buy passes for the Denver Art Museum's Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective. Not only does the show look fascinating, but it's also the only U.S. stop. It premiered in Paris in 2010.

Tickets for your average adult are $22, and it buys you 40 years of fashion history in 200 garments, covering YSL's beginnings at Christian Dior, his partnership with artist Piet Mondrian, his take on tuxedos (something fundamental, according to show literature) and, of course, amazing dresses like this one:

The warmest, most fashionable option for winter.

More activities and events are planned, both inside the museum and around Denver.

Colorado will never trade its boots for stilettos, but let's enjoy our state's fashion moment. And plan some future haute couture playdates. May I suggest Balenciaga next?
