In January 1958, Yves Saint Laurent (Pierre Niney) – aged merely 21 – was unexpectedly called upon to oversee the great Paris fashion house established by the recently deceased Christian Dior. All eyes turned to this very young assistant as he presented his first haute couture collection for Dior. During the highly successful and groundbreaking show, Saint Laurent met Pierre Bergé (Guillaume Gallienne), patron of the arts, future love of his life and lifelong business partner.
Three years later, they created the Yves Saint Laurent Company, which would soon become one of the most famous luxury brands in history. Directed by Jalil Lespert with a screenplay by Lespert and Marrie-Pierre Huster, YVES SAINT LAURENT follows the captivating story of how these two men managed to turn the sleepy world of fashion upside down.
