Yves Saint Laurent back on the stage again

Over the past years the margin between fashion and art has become quite vague: designers collaborate with painters and musicians; numerous exhibitions celebrate the art-design interconnection. A great example of this is famous designers creating theatrical costumes.
For instance, Stefano Pilati has recently designed costumes for a staging of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal”. The clothes he created had a perfect air about them for a play set in the 60s and 70s.
This is yet another work for the theatre in YSL’s history. Yves Saint Laurent himself had accomplished many such projects, which were in 2007 gathered together to form the exhibition “Yves Saint Laurent: Theatre/Cinema/Music-Hall/Ballet”.
The “Betrayal”, directed by Ian Rickson, is on in London’s Comedy theatre from 16th of June until 20th of August.
