已逝時裝設計師伊夫・聖羅蘭(Yves Saint Laurent)與摩洛哥的緣分註定是漫長且瑰麗的,一如設計師的才華,及這座富麗的沙漠之城本身。這位多產的設計師自從1996年和其伴侶皮耶・貝爾傑(Pierre Bergé)首次拜訪摩洛哥後,就深深地鍾情於這個國家。2017年,一座以聖羅蘭為名的博物館,在馬拉喀什(Marrakech)開幕了,裡面將展出聖羅蘭一生的歷程與作品。
Yves Saint Laurent’s love affair with Morocco has been a long and lavish one. The prolific designer became enraptured with the country since he first visited in 1966 with his partner, Pierre Bergé. Now, a museum dedicated to his life and work has just opened in Marrakech.

由Studio KO的Olivier Marty和Karl Fournier操刀,這座雙色調赤陶磨石子建築輪廓方正粗獷,卻因其細緻的紋樣紅磚砌牆顯得高雅別緻。這個設計巧思正反映了聖羅蘭的設計風格——將大量的圖樣融入服裝之中,讓服裝提升氛圍,打造出精緻高雅的女人輪廓。建築內部設置了一個寬敞的園庭中庭,以及一個由Christophe Martin規劃、400平方公尺的常設展,聚焦於聖羅蘭豐富精彩的設計生涯。此外,空間內亦設有一座圖書館、書店、講堂、咖啡廳,以及特展的展覽空間。開幕後的第一場展覽將展出法國藝術家Jacques Majorelle的作品。
Designed by French architects Olivier Marty and Karl Fournier of Studio KO, the duotone terracotta and terrazzo building is striking for its graphic red brickwork, reflecting the kinds of patterns that Saint Laurent incorporated into his designs. Centered by a circular atrium, the spacious interior houses a 400 sqm Christophe Martin-designed permanent exhibition dedicated to Saint Laurent’s prolific fashion design career. Accompanying it is a temporary exhibition space — the debut collection of which features the works of Jacques Majorelle — a library, bookstore, auditorium and café.

貝爾傑,聖羅蘭的伴侶,這麼說到:「當他第(聖羅蘭)一次造訪馬拉喀什,他就深深的被這座城市感動,也立刻決定要此擁有一方屬於自己的天地並定期造訪。這一切感覺起來是那麼地理所當然,五十年後,這座城市裡出現了一座獻給他與他的作品的博物館,因為他的創作是如此的受到這個國度的啟發。」
In the words of his late partner, Pierre Bergé, “when [Laurent] first discovered Marrakech […] he was so moved by the city that he immediately decided to buy a house here, and returned regularly. It feels perfectly natural, fifty years later, to build a museum dedicated to his oeuvre, which was so inspired this country.” The museum’s opening — on 19 October 2017 — follows shortly after following the recent opening of Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris.
