Vincent Darré has designed for Yves Saint Laurent, Fendi and, now, the LSU Museum of Art

The next time you set foot in the LSU Museum of Art, you might find yourself in the presence of a certain … je ne sais quoi. Or at least that’s the extent our French can go to describe the three new ceramic works on view at the museum, each one crafted by LSU MFA candidate Matt Jones and ceramics professors Michaelene Walsh and Andy Shaw. These weren’t your average end-table conversation starters, though. They came, instead, from visionary designer Vincent Darré, who before his appearance at the museum stopped by the LSU College of Art and Design to finish off the vases’ design with a few artistic touches of his own—a privilege usually reserved for little ol’ names like Yves Saint Laurent, Fendi and Moschino.

Sunday Best: Iconic designer Yves Saint Laurent takes over Paris with 6 new exhibits

Should you happen to find yourself in Paris this spring — yes, I’m dreaming, but what is life without dreams? — you can take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the work of Yves Saint Laurent. The iconic French fashion designer, who died in 2008, is the subject of no fewer than six museum exhibits through May, at the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Centre Pompidou, Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, Musée Picasso Paris and Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the first YSL fashion show. This gloriously beaded jacket, looking like it might be worn by a very chic angel, is at the Louvre; I love how it seems to be magically suspended in the air in this photo, like it doesn’t need wings to soar.

Yves Saint Laurent takes over six museums in Paris

Yves Saint Laurent may be most associated with the Left Bank of Paris, but in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the house’s founding, six of the French capital’s most prestigious museums are paying tribute to the creative legacy of the late designer, one who, after founding his maison when aged just 26, revolutionised the concept of ready-to-wear, fused the spheres of fashion and art, and popularised silhouettes now synonymous with the contemporary woman’s wardrobe, from the Le Smoking tuxedo to the safari jacket.
