Morocco will soon be home to Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech, or mYSLm, a museum honoring the late designer and his storied fashion house. Selected works will be on display, all from The Fondation Pierre Bergé, the Parisian headquarters of YSL’s rich archive that’s made up of 5,000 clothing garments, 15,000 haute couture accessories and 50,000 drawings and other associated objects. French architecture firm Studio KO designed the building, which will be crafted from terra cotta bricks with a pattern to take after threads of fabric, while the interior will resemble a luxurious couture jacket’s lining. Spanning more than 4,000 square meters, the museum will contain two exhibition spaces, a 130-seat auditorium, restaurant with an outdoor terrace and a research library of 5,000 books. mYSLm will open its doors in fall 2017, located on Rue Yves Saint Laurent and next to the Jardin Majorelle — the garden he once owned, where his ashes were scattered after passing in 2008.
